What applications do you currently use R for?

I am really just getting acquainted with R after years of using mostly SAS and Matlab for data management and analysis. Fairly soon, I would like to be doing things like: estimating linear models, solving optimization problems, computing spatial statistics, back testing financial market strategies...and bootstrapping all of the above.

What topics would you like to see covered at our Meetups?

The recent events look great. Anything related to: academic, dealing with large data sets, Hadoop, Amazon Web Services, parallel algorithms would definitely interest me. Of course, I also hope to learn about things I have not given much thought to before. :)

Would you be willing to host a talk on your area of expertise?

Not now, but perhaps once my colleagues and I develop expertise in some area, I would like to.


I provide programming and other I.T. support for research projects at the Stanford business school.
