About me

👋 I am a statistician interested in applying statistical methods to address specific policy-relevant questions, particularly in international trade, migration, investments and theoretically founded empirical work.

R and Shiny training

I offer short courses for groups and individual personalized sessions at Buy Me a Coffee. I am certified to teach the Tidyverse and Shiny by RStudio.

To contact me, send me an email to mavargas11 📫 I can provide my CV (academic/profesional) upon request.


Selected R packages


I maintain the WebTechnologies view and the official mirror for Chile.


I created the R package varsityblues, which allow you to write your own reports including R code and handles LaTeX setup automatically. This package is based on the LaTeX style files that that late professor Kim C. Border once sent to me.

Cloud computing

I created images for RStudio Server and RStudio Server + Kubernetes, which allow you to create virtual machines on DigitalOcean and to skip the setup time to install the Tidyverse and other packages. With these images, it takes around 30 seconds to have a ready to go setup for Data Science. This combines well with analogsea as I explain in my blog.


Check SQL Databases for students and educators if you need access to PostgreSQL, MySQL and SQL Server databases (in strictly descending order of preference!).

I also maintain Open Trade Statistics, a project created with the intention to lower the barrier to working with international economic trade data. It includes a public API, a dashboard, and an R package for data retrieval.


I translated a large part of 📖 R for Data Science translation into Spanish, where I also had to organize the community involved in the translation. This project also features solutions in Spanish.
