Yihui Xie

I'm a software engineer working with RStudio, Inc. I got my PhD from the Department of Statistics, Iowa State University. My thesis was Dynamic Graphics and Reporting for Statistics, advised by Di and Heike. I have been developing a few R packages either seriously or for fun (or both), such as animation, formatR, and knitr. I founded a Chinese website called "Capital of Statistics" in 2006, which has grown into a large online community on statistics in China. I also initiated the first Chinese R conference in 2008. Besides statistics, I'm a big fan of GitHub, LyX and pandoc. I hate IE. I fall asleep when I see beamer slides, and I yell at people who use \textbf{} to write \title{}. I know I cannot eat code, so I cook almost every day to stay away from my computer for two hours.

这是谢益辉的个人主页。2013年底我从Ames村办大学统计系毕业(终于解决了人生前30年里最大的FAQ:你怎么还没毕业?),目前就职于RStudio。我支持开源软件,喜欢折腾网站和代码,是一个高度自我驱动的人。打羽毛球爱扑网,打乒乓球像太极,网球满场子捡球,篮球容易被撞飞,攀岩一次,腿软。宅,口重,嗜辣,屡教不改。智商中等偏下,对麻将和三国杀有不可逾越的认知障碍,实变函数课上曾被老师叫醒。少读书,只是偶尔网上乱翻帖子,对诗词楹联比较感兴趣,目前比较中意的一联是“千秋邈矣独留我 百战归来再读书”,最喜欢的一首词是:

深情似海,问相逢初度,是何年纪?依约而今还记取,不是前生夙世。放学花前,题诗石上,春水园亭里。逢君一笑,人间无此欢喜。
无奈苍狗看云,红羊数劫,惘惘休提起。客气渐多真气少,汩没心灵何已。千古声名,百年担负,事事违初意。心头阁住,儿时那种情味。
