For the sake of clarity I have grouped the computational tools I utilize under four categories. These categories are somewhat superficial from a practical standpoint as I use many of them inside . For instance, even though I am able to code a standalone program in C++, I mainly call my C++ functions directly from using Rcpp. Also, although I am comfortable with Markdown and Pandoc, I often use R Markdown. Similarly, I do most of my work with spatial data with (see this post on inSileco) but I occasionally use QuantumGIS. Finally, I'd like to mention that I am currently working on Linux (Debian Testing) I used to work on MacOS and I have a little experience with several Linux distributions and Windows.

Scientific computing

Programing languages I use to perform numerical simulations, data analysis, statstics and data visualization.

Database management and data serialization

On the top of the common spreasheet file formats, I use:

Document prepration

To write manuscripts, I need to be well-equiped!

Web development

I am not a web developer, yet I use different web laguages for blogging and retrieving data available online!
