**Favorite quotes?**

- "Everybody wants to be a bodybuilder, but nobody wants to lift no heavy-ass weight."

-Ronnie Coleman - "You solve one problem and you solve the next one and then the next. And if you solve enough problems, you get to come home."

-from*The Martian* - "C is for cookie, that's good enough for me."

**Favorite area of math?**I like working on applied problems that are not solvable using standard off-the-shelf techniques. Instead, a solution is achieved by leveraging domain-specific structure of the problem:

- compile heuristics based on domain expertise,
- unify them into a coherent mathematical framework, and
- generalize it to all necessary use-cases while keeping it elegant enough that the engineering implementation remains feasible.
