I am a statistics PhD student at Cornell University. My research centers around designing efficient algorithms to allow for the estimation of high-dimensional multivariate time series. As a result, I spend a disproportionate amount of time programming in R. I created this blog to record some of the tricks and shortcomings of R that I have learned over the years, both for my own benefit and with the hope that may be useful to others. I have additional side interests in sports analytics and longform journalism, which may be the subject of future posts.
