I am a student at Stanford University studying Mathematics (logic, probability, number theory) and Computer Science (theory, machine learning, security). I lecture a class on standard C++ programming!

I love teaching and thinking about problems that make my brain hurt. I keep a blog on the side where I write about random Maths, CS, and Philosophy related gems that come my way.

Blog

This blog is generally just my ramblings about random things. Whenever I encounter anything interesting or figure out a cool way to think about a problem, I write the results up here for personal venting and public education.

Teaching

Here are some links to the class websites of the courses I have taught at Stanford so far. If you have any questions or suggestions for improvements, please feel free to email me!
