I am a research scientist living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. I like to believe that I know a little bit of signal processing and applied cryptography, but experience challenges this view almost every day. I have lived in several cities, but I miss, most of all, the little town of Cambridge, Massachusetts, where I spent six lonely but productive years.
This blog started out in early 2006 as a place to collect and share thoughts on the books that I was reading outside school and work. Over time, other aspects of my life have crept in. I like to ride my bicycle, play some tennis, watch birds. I used to write about these things oftener than I do now, and I hope to return the blog to some semblance of fluidity in the coming months.
