Marc Comas-Cufí

Associate Professor of Statistics

Universitat de Girona

Currently, I am at IDIAP Jordi Gol and University of Girona as a statistician and associate professor respectively. I am a member of the research group in Vascular Health at IDIAP Jordi Gol and the research group in Statistics and Compositional Data Analysis at the University of Girona.

I have fun programming and learning how to use new programming languages. Nowadays, I mostly program in R (statistical tasks), Python (data management), Java (GUI developing) and JavaScript (web programming) but I have been programming in C/C++, Fortran, Visual Basic (and VBA), Stata, Matlab, Lisp. I have good notions of most common markup languages: html, LaTeX or Markdown for documents and xml or json for data structures. In my daily work I usually work with open source software. Probably, the programs I use the most in my daily routines are RStudio, GNU Make and Git.
