PhD candidate in computer science at Brigham Young University, studying programming languages for probabilistic modeling and inference. Current topics of interest: formal languages, foundations of mathematics, measure-theoretic probability, applied probability, topology, and computation in the limit.
In my spare time, I learn piano arrangements of great music from video games. Current favorite composers: Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross), and Koji Kondo and his protégés (Legend of Zelda, Super Mario). These guys are terrific.
