About me

I am a software engineer at Google, working at their Los Angeles office. Prior to this, I was a mathematics Ph.D. student studying algebraic geometry and doing research on deforming categories of coherent sheaves.

My wife is a former and future physicist and we have three small children.

I am fascinated by the way technology can give superhuman powers to ordinary nerds.
