I'm a computer scientist and cryptography research student from New Zealand, currently completing a PhD in mathematics at the University of Auckland. Other academic interests include security and logic/programming language theory. I'm a frequent contributor to, and wallet maintainer of, Bitcoin Core. I also moderate the Bitcoin StackExchange and am an administrator of the Bitcoin Wiki. I love filling my spare time with random books and papers, online seminars, competitive programming (e.g. ICPC world finalist 2018), and of course coding. I also work as a freelance programmer, past jobs ranging from backend web development to android apps.
