About meI currently work with a quantitative trading group at a renowned hedge fund company in Chicago. Prior to this job I spent 5 years at the Social Computing Lab of HP, where my research interests focused on social networks, mechanism design, stochastic modeling, and the comparative study of western and Japanese detective fiction. I like all kinds of mathematical puzzles and interview problems.

(Before I had two daughters) I used to spend most of my spare time studying detective novels, playing badminton, hacking Perl/Ruby on one of my Macs, playing NDS games, and/or watching videos. Now it is all history.

About my libraryI prefer classic puzzlers, especially those falling into the impossible crime subgenre, rather than modern suspense or thrillers. My favorite author is undoubtedly John Dickson Carr, followed by either Ellery Queen or Shimada Soji. I resent Raymond Chandler.
