I have been at Google since April 2008,
first in the Localization department in various roles, from April 2012 with the
Google News team as a product specialist,
from May 2015 at Google Fiber as a web
developer, and from May 2017 as a software engineer, most recently with the
Google Earth Engine team.
Before Google, from June 2006 until April 2008, I worked at
Propel Software, mostly as a QA engineer intern,
but also briefly as a product manager.

I graduated from Stanford in December 2007,
where I received a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with Honors. My thesis and
much of my coursework focused on modern algebra. Prior to Stanford, I had attended
- Schoof-Elkies-Atkin Algorithm (senior thesis)
- Classification of the Irreducible Modules of the Monomial Matrix Group G(2,1,n): version 1
- Classification of the Irreducible Representations of the Dihedral Group D2n: version 1.1
- The Arzelà-Ascoli Theorem: version 2 [PDF],
- Primes of the Form x2+17y2: version 1 [PDF],
- Eigenspaces in Recursive Sequences: draft 2005/09/05 [PDF], [Source]. Note: there are a number of known
inaccuracies in the text. Maybe I will be inspired to fix them at some point.
- In January '05, I started working on a project that aims to map Leontief's
Input-Output Model to a mixed-strategy two-player game in Game Theory. It has never gone past
a brain-storming stage, and I still entertain the idea of resuming this work: draft
