Marcelo S. Perlin

Associate Professor of Finance



I recently published the second edition of my R book “Analyzing Financial and Economic Data with R”. See this blog post for more details.

I work as an associate professor of Finance at Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), south of Brazil. I love doing research and using R. You can find more details about my past and current work in tabs Publications and Code. My CV is available as pdf and Lattes link.

In this blog I will write about my CRAN packages and any other ideas about finance and R or research papers that I’m currently working on. The content, however, will be mostly about R.
