With everything that has been going on of late, I have yet to mention that Khanh Nguyen, a
Ph.D. student in Computer Science at U Mass / Boston, will be working with me
as part of the Google Summer of
Code program this year.
We had twenty-two applications to review for the
R project, including three for the
RQuantLib topic I had proposed. Khanh’s application was clearly among the
best, and I look forward to helping him do cool stuff over the summer. He
already posted two short emails on the r-sig-finance
and the quantlib-user
lists soliciting suggestions and comments. So if you have comments regarding R
and QuantLib, please get in touch with him or me!
