I am a software engineer and mathematician. I studied mathematics at University of Florida and Dartmouth College. I have done work in algorithmic randomness, research computing, and experimental mathematics. I've worked in industry for 8 years, focused on delivering large-scale platforms for research, instrumentation, visualization, and experiments to enterprise customers. I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in 2018. For more about my software and research, see my personal website.
