This page lists a number of projects that I have worked on over the years. I originally made these entirely for my own use and on the basis of my idiosyncratic interests at the time, but I have decided to include them here in case they may be of use or interest to anyone else.

2008 – Quantitative analysis of the Cold War: A presentation of key statistical data pertaining to the military, economic, and social aspects of the 1945-1991 conflict.
