I am an economist with an interest in experimental and applied methods in the study of intergenerational transfers and health economics. I earned my Ph.D. at Cornell University. I also have an MA in Economics from Cornell, an M.Sc. in Economics from METU where I also earned my B.Sc. in Economics.

Ever since I was a child, I have been passionate about computers and programming. Over the years, I have used many programming languages, and I believe in using the right tool for the job.

ν42 is my blog for programming and technology related topics. You can also find me on Stackoverflow answering programming questions.

I am available to consult on projects related to economic data, statistical analysis, code review, forensic analysis, web scraping, PDF scraping, XML processing, web site migrations, and training.
