I am a Computer Science M. Sc. student (they/them). My research interests are knowledge representation and processing of math, and lately also programming language theory.
I contribute to the MMT project (UniFormal/MMT on GitHub), a larger research software written in Scala which lets you formalize a broad range of formal knowledge: math, logic, type theory, and foundations. MMT and many of its algorithms are foundation-independent: with bare MMT, you don't even have natural numbers, let alone functions. The beauty is versatility; the challenge generality.
For more info and publications, see my academic website and personal website.
More hobby-wise, I am dabbling in the Coq Proof Assistant and, e.g., formalized my own flavor of an ontology language and a lambda calculus with de Bruijn indices.
Programming-wise, I also fancy the latest TypeScript/ECMAScript. And I like writing/autogenerating syntax highlighters that succeed on over 15k lines of code.
Feel free to reach out (by posting an issue here)! I always love hearing and chatting about cool things.
...either because they are funny, stunning or the best factually correct explanation I've ever found!
Following that it is 1 of 7 (15%) I assume it was taxes.
