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. My current favorite is Perl, but I can appreciate where other languages shine.
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.
ν42 is my blog for programming and technology related topics.
