Garen

I’m a software engineer working at RStudio, Inc. I earned my PhD from the Department of Statistics, Iowa State University. My thesis was Dynamic Graphics and Reporting for Statistics, advised by Di Cook and Heike Hofmann. I have developed a few R packages either seriously or for fun (or both), such as knitr, animation, bookdown, blogdown, pagedown, xaringan, and tinytex. I founded a Chinese website called “Capital of Statistics” in 2006, which has grown into a large online community on statistics. I initiated the Chinese R conference in 2008. I’m a big fan of GitHub, LyX and Pandoc. I hate IE. I fall asleep when I see beamer slides, and I yell at people who use \textbf{} to write \title{}. I know I cannot eat code, so I cook almost every day to stay away from my computer for two hours.

深情似海,问相逢初度,是何年纪?依约而今还记取,不是前生夙世。放学花前,题诗石上,春水园亭里。逢君一笑,人间无此欢喜。
无奈苍狗看云,红羊数劫,惘惘休提起。客气渐多真气少,汩没心灵何已。千古声名,百年担负,事事违初意。心头阁住,儿时那种情味。
