About meI'm a post-doc Research Fellow in the Statistical Machine Learning group at the Australian National University.

About my libraryI'm slowly adding all the books in my library, favourites first. Mostly though I'm just using LibraryThing to keep track of the new books I buy and when I start and finish reading them.

My aim is to rate and review all the books I finish within a week or so of completing them in order to improve my ability to reflect more on what I've read.

GroupsComputer Scientists, Mathematics, Philosophy and Theory, Philosophy of Science, Purely Programmers

Favorite authorsJohn Brunner, Italo Calvino, Michael Chabon, J. M. Coetzee, William Gibson, Douglas Hofstadter, Miguel de Cervantes, Olaf Stapledon, David Foster Wallace (Shared favorites)


Favorite bookstoresBooks Kinokuniya - Sydney, Livraria Lello, Paperchain Bookstore, Saint Georges Bookshop, St. Mark's Bookshop (New York City), Strand Bookstore
