    R Packages

    I have a keen interest in developing novel econometric methods and have contributed three R packages to CRAN.

    • CoxPlus: A fast and highly scalable R package (core code written in C++) estimating Cox model (proportional hazards model) when an event has more than one cause. It also supports random and fixed effects, tied events, and time-varying variables. This package can be used in multi-channel advertising, social influence identification, etc.
    • PanelCount: A fast and scalable R package (speeded up by C++) implementing random effects and/or sample selection models for panel count data. This package can be applied to marketing campaigns with self-selection and repeated observations.
    • endogeneity: A comprehensive package that implements various recursive two-stage models to address the endogeneity issue in the absence of instrumental variables. This package can be used to address the endogeneity of mediators in randomized experiments or treatment variables in observational studies.
