About My Library
My nonfiction collection more or less traces the path of my academic and professional interests from high school to now: classics -> philosophy -> philosophy of mathematics -> mathematics -> biostatistics and medicine, with a side order of cognitive science.

My taste is biased toward humor and general cleverness.

My rating system is based primarily on free association and on not having time to rate things. I guess that's not really a "system," per se.
About Me
My whole life has been one long ultraviolent hyperkinetic nightmare. But yes, I am a biostatistician. I do what little I can to serve the public health. I was recently described as a world-expert in clinical trials for rare diseases! My friends, this bodes very poorly for individuals suffering from rare diseases.
