Andrea Cirillo's website

Benvenuto, I am an Italian quantitative analyst well versed into statistical learning, data mining and data visualization disciplines.

I am the guy behind some beloved #rstats packages like updateR for Mac, paletteR and Ramazon. You can find more about my software within the software page.

Within this website you can find:

  • Well crafted blog posts mainly about analytics and R but also about miscellaneous stuff like productivity and work-life balance
  • My book stack, I.e. book I have read and I recommend because they were relevant for my personal and professional development (and I guess it will be the same for you).

If you have heard about my R data mining book you can find more info within the box below.

Finally if you want to get in touch with me I suggest you to visit the contacts page. Cheers,
