A society cannot grow without a healthy exchange of knowledge and perspectives. I record and share my thoughts, questions, methods, and experiences as my contribution.
Less dramatically, I am an engineer and scientist by trade. I run an industrial R&D team focused on machine learning and natural language processing for the legal technology industry. In the past I’ve worked with quantum computation, condensed matter physics, space-exploration robots, and gene sequencing devices. I’ve enjoyed diving deep into a few different fields like quantum and statistical physics, information theory, high performance computing, backend software systems, neural networks, optimization theory, and natural language processing. I was previously a co-founder and CTO of an AI startup called Anton.ai. I have a physics education and have a few publications to my name.
I’ve simultaneously managed to be a workaholic and find time for normal life. I like playing a few sports, like soccer, bouldering, snowboarding, and hiking. I enjoy eating raw fish regularly, heavy metal poisoning be damned, and love watching live theater and indie films. My favorite author of fiction right now is Ted Chiang.
