My favorite software is R but I usually write my codes (for intensive computations) using R and C++ jointly. I often build R packages for my research papers which develop new methods/models.

  • PartialNetwork: an R package for estimating Peer Effects using Partial Network Data, (with Vincent Boucher)
  • vMF: an R package for fast Sampling from von Mises Fisher Distribution - [vignette]
