This section is still under development. I am planning to post updates about my research and teaching here. I am also preparing a few posts on academic software and website that I personally find useful producing, organizing and sharing academic content. One post will be about LyX - a user friendly TeX editor. Another one will be on Zotero - a tool for organizing and sharing research sources, fully integrated with LyX and compatible with reference management software such as JabRef. Since my research is mainly empirically driven, I spend a lot of time looking for good data sources. Most recently, I have been working with two data portals: DataMarket and Data Hub. I find them particularly useful and user-friendly since they aggregate data from various sources and allow you to add your own data inputs, much like Wikipedia.
