I just exited a Ph.D. program in algebraic geometry, looking at performing differential geometry over discrete “manifolds”. In particular, I was interested in porting General Relativity to a discrete differential geometry realm. Now, I’m looking for remote work.
In broad strokes, my talents lie in three main domains. Relaying what I hear from my peers: 1) my ramp-up time on technical subjects is fast, 2) my analysis is deep and careful, and 3) my explanations of highly technical material are lucid and helpful. Words are words though, so I hope to find a team with lots of opportunities for growth, and where my natural talents are useful and appreciated.
On the DevOps side, I have a relatively comprehensive understanding of Linux as an OS, having used Linux primarily since middle school. These days, I pretty much live in the command line and (finally) have the background to rely primarily on man/info pages and source code for my documentation needs, without resorting to blogs or wiki pages.
Finally, I love math. I find it beautiful, exhilarating, not to mention useful. Regardless of day job, I find myself spending a good bit of my free time studying algebra, geometry, and their intersection. This interest spills over into languages like Haskell and Scheme, hardware execution models, and even the Linux kernel.
I would flourish in R&D or any position that can use an overabudance of curiosity and a scrutinizing eye.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
