I'm an economist by training. I've used LaTeX for more than 20 years, ever since I wrote my Ph.D. dissertation with an early version of LaTeX. I continue to use LaTeX for my working papers, journal articles, and some of my other professional publications.

I am the principal author of the selnolig package, which lets users automatically suppress typographic ligatures that are inappropriate because they span morpheme boundaries, for both English and German language texts.

I once edited an entire conference proceedings volume in LaTeX. At the organization prior to the one I work for now, I wrote a LaTeX package to implement the style and layout requirements the organization had come up with for working papers written by its professional staff. This package (i) helped up free up much of the authors' time that was otherwise wasted on figuring out how to implement the guidelines in LaTeX -- the guidelines had been written primarily with users of MS Word -- and (ii) actually convinced some of our economists to make the switch from MS Word to LaTeX when writing their working papers.


Welcome to TeX.SE!

A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, then they are marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it).

I've just been asked to write a minimal example. What's that?

Please do not use $$ in a LaTeX document to initiate and terminate display-math mode. For more information, see the postings Why is \[ ... \] preferable to $$ ... $$? and What are the differences between $$, \[, align, equation and displaymath?
