Here I write about books, cinema, data science and analytics, Korean Pop, and various other oddities. I also write updates here about the status of my research and the courses I teach. Every now and again I also write technical articles about data science / software development at Medium.com.

How to study Math while the world teeters on the brink of war

The following blog post was inspired by two things: first, by a Youtube video by the author John Green craftily titled “How to Make Potatoes While Dread Presses In from Every Direction”, and second, by a fifteen minute ordeal I’ve only just now had with a particularly challenging notation from a textbook I’m reading on …
