about me

My first post!

Hello everyone! This is the first (ever) post for a new blog about Finance and R. My name is Marcelo Perlin and my day job is assistant professor of Finance in Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, in the city of south of Brazil (Porto Alegre). I received my PhD in Finance from Reading University (ICMA Centre) in 2010 and I have a long experience in doing applied research in Finance.
