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 that implements the style and layout requirements the organization had come up with for working papers written by its staff. This package (i) helped up free up much of the authors' time otherwise wasted on figuring out how to implement the guidelines that had been written primarily with users of MS Word in mind and (ii) actually convinced some of our economists to finally make the switch from MS Word to LaTeX for 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?
