A Next Chapter

A lot can happen in the span of 1.5 years of not writing. I became a master’s student in Computer Science at JHU. MedHacks, the focus of my last post (in 2015!), has beautifully transitioned leadership twice. I’ve lived in Neot Semadar, a wonderful kibbutz in the southern desert of Israel; worked at Flipboard as a data scientist through the KPCB Fellowship; played the piano at the Peabody conservatory, and much more that cannot be encapsulated in one short post.

Previously, I used this blog as a “slightly less private journal” on my travels in Silicon Valley. Now, as my master’s research focuses on machine learning, I want to keep track and write a few simple tutorials every month on cool things I’ve learned in advanced Computer Science and Mathematics. I’ll post what I’ve learned here - hopefully others can benefit and learn from them. I believe sparse reconstruction, subspace clsutering, and several other more academic topics are locked up in academia, and could have use in industry. Further, I plan to continue to travel once my studies conclude, and will continue to write for the same original purpose.

Why MedHacks?

MedHacks

MedHacks, the medical themed hackathon I started at Johns Hopkins, is next week! For details on the motivation behind MedHacks, check out our most recent Medium post.
