Interests

As an industry mathematician, I have a wide range of interests. I currently work in venture capital and so am always interested in learning more about this space. Correspondingly, I am interested in traditional and non-traditional financial data and how it can be used to make better investment decisions. I am simulataneously interested in machine learning, data engineering, devops, and other tools that can help build better decision support systems.

For my research, I am primarily interested in dynamic networks, i.e., graphs that change over time. While I am now primarily interested in the various applications of dynamic networks and large-scale data that can be represented as dynamic networks, I am also interested in theoretical questions, including perspectives from algebraic topology, algorithms, stochastic processes, optimization, and graph theory.

As a coder, I am interested in cool, ergonomic, and powerful devops and data engineering tools. I also love functional programming, immutable data structures, and type systems.

I have other interests, too, including (but not limited to):

  • parallel and distributed computing
  • crypotographically-guaranteed data privacy
  • classical music
  • aerospace technology and other vehicles
