I launched this website in 2009, initially as a personal blog, before later expanding it to include a professional portfolio. Throughout the years, I have explored different publishing platforms: from WordPress and OpenScholar to hand-written HTML. My journey led me to adopt the static website generator: blogdown, driven by Hugo.

This page lists the tools I use to build the site today. The entire stack is free and open source, and can be found on GitHub. The source code for this site itself is available at
