Welcome To The New Web Site

Written on May 15, 2015

Welcome to my newly designed web page.

As some of you may know, I used to have a blog and a landing page hosted on a traditional host. This proved to be a bit too bulky for someone who didn’t need a lot of webspace and didn’t really enjoy working with wordpress.

This new page combines a blog with a landing page and nearly everything compiles in markdown – meaning that I can very easily write new stuff and update this thing. I’m using the hyde theme for jekyll. It was a snap to install and configure to my liking.

It also is based on github, which I’ve used a little, but that also facilitates very easy updating as well. It will also prove useful when I transition back into working on some quantitative papers – which if you check out my research page should be starting up soon. One worthwhile benefit of storing statistical and other computationally intensive work on github, other than the facilitation of sharing, is naturally a version control platform and most folks seem to agree that version control is a necessary component of the modern scientific endeavor.

In the meantime, please do let me know if you see something breaking. I realize I still have a few things to do including fixing the internal link directs and updating the DNS records.
