Regarding consulting/tutoring help with paper on Thurstonian model

Hey guys,

I’m a novice Stan user and Bayesian enthusiast. I came across a paper that I’m deeply interested in, but I don’t have the background to understand it well. I’m asking for some friendly advice on who to talk to/consult with for some help. This may not seem stan related, but the paper goes over a MCMC model implemented in Gibbs sampler, which I may eventually port to Stan if it isn’t already.

The paper can be found here: Thurstonian Ranking with Covariates

Thank you for your help!
