Currently developing the algorithms that drive Math Academy's fully automated and personalized online learning system.

Background: Before finding my niche with Math Academy I applied math in a variety of contexts including working as a data scientist, modeling biological neural networks, and improving particle detectors. I also taught, tutored, and developed math content in parallel for a decade, culminating in developing one of the most advanced high school applied math/CS sequences in the country. life story

Hobbies: I recently started blogging. I used to write math books, make music, and play hockey.
