Everyone has his preference in choosing his tools for research. This webpage documents my resources about courses, journals, conferences, and programming languages. In addition to that, you can also find the people I am following, the data sets information collected by me and my collaborators.

I am a big fan of open source software and programming languages. I prefer to use R (data processing, numeric simulation, visualization), Python (data crawling),  Methematica (analytic model), and Netlogo (agent-based model). In addition to that, I know a byte of spss, stata, mplus, amos, hlm. For those who works in programming, I would like to recommend you to use Github and StackOverFlow. However, I am not a methodologist, most my studies are theory-driven.
