I’m an associate professor of Finance at Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), south of Brazil. Details about my past and current work are available in section Publications and Code. My CV is available as pdf and Lattes link.

In this blog I will write about my CRAN packages and any other ideas about finance and R or research papers that I’m currently working on. The content, however, will be mostly about R.
