I'm a rising junior Computer Science major at Harvey Mudd College, planning to graduate in Spring 2009. A topic that is especially interesting to me in CS is the various forms of interaction between computers and people--AI, robotics, HCI and ubiquitous computing. I blame Isaac Asimov for this, especially his collection of short stories I, Robot.

It may be obvious from this statement that I read a lot.

Other activities include grading and tutoring for the CS department at Mudd, reading webcomics, various sorts of social dance (ballroom, salsa, and Lindy Hop; also trying Argentine tango this summer), and wishing desperately that I was doing capoeira.

A picture of me may or may not appear in this section at some point.
