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 on RQuantLib 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!
