About me:
I do research on Bayesian statistical modeling of time series data, but mainly on the computational aspects using Markov chain Monte Carlo methods. I am working on my first topic, extending [Gregor Kastner](https://bach.wu.ac.at/d/research/ma/10813/)'s [`stochvol`](https://cran.r-project.org/package=stochvol) package with a stochastic volatility model that captures the leverage effect. More broadly but still professionally, I am interested in high performance computing, software development, functional programming. My hobbies include running, swimming, languages, and I play the drums when I have the time.
