I am a software engineer from Australia. I have lived in San Francisco since 2013. Among other things, I'm interested in data structures, physics, economics, functional programming, and effective altruism. I work at the Machine Intelligence Research Institute.

Here are the most interesting things I've written. My most interesting open source projects are:

Search engine for data structures

Search engine demo

Software for solving physics problems
