About Me

beach

  • I’m a programming languages researcher and aspiring boffin. I also dabble in Data Science and Algebraic Geometry.
  • Also a book junkie. Love Haskell, Hackerspaces, puzzles, making and sailing.

What’s Unique about me

  • I would describe myself as intellectually curious. I’ve taken classes in sculpting, drafting, 3D modelling, woodworking, electronics (low voltage/high-voltage/PCB-milling), welding, machining, and robotics (I also taught a robotics class weekly for about a year). I’ve sailed from MDR to Catalina Island, and to Newport beach. I like Haskell and programming languages in general, which I did not learn formally in school. I also worked in manufacturing for a couple startups, and understand the process of manufacturing real-world products (generating a BOM, 3-d modelling, ordering parts, bidding with client, etc). I believe that life experience/learning from failure is important.
  • I see programming as a tool. I believe that coming from a different perspective is important in solving new problems in computer science, and I enjoy collaborating with people who are from various backgounds in research.

Update (as of 2019)

  • In Fall 19, I’ll be starting as a PhD candidate in Programming Languages Research at the University of Vermont (my advisor is Joseph P. Near). My focus will be on Compilers and Data Privacy, with a smidgen of Neural Networks. I will also be a TA for Compilers (Haskell) and Data Privacy coursework.
  • I’m open to Summer and Winter Internships, particularly as they relate to my topics of research, or Haskell in general, and I’ll get back to you, even though it takes a while because I’m often really busy! :)
