LIGO My Eggo
For the 2018-2019 academic year, I am a computer science Masters student at Cambridge University, as a Churchill Scholar.

Previously, I was a math major (and computer science minor) at Caltech.

Broadly, I seek to apply mathematical thinking to problems in computer science with practical applications. My recent areas of interest include the design of algorithms for error-correcting codes and cryptography. At Cambridge, I will be researching algebraic Internet routing.

While at Caltech, I played tenor saxophone in the
Caltech-Occidental Wind Orchestra. I can juggle five balls and three of various other objects.

Math is Fun?

Here is a list of math jokes, compiled by Laura Shou.
Here is a packet of "fun" math problems, compiled from various sources by a group including William Hoza, Laura Shou, Jalex Stark, Michael Wheeler, and myself. They are designed to be printed double sided and cut in two, so that each problem has a link to its "answer" on the back.
