Goals of this website
Currently under construction, it’s supposed to be a place to share thoughts and observations, present interesting material, and a motivation to write more and better.
Here’s a summary of the main components behind the website:
Core: the website is built using jekyll, a lightweight static-site generator.
Math renderer: mathjax
Latex to markdown: I’m writing math posts directly in latex, and then using a modified version of Luca Trevisan’s latex2wp to turn them automatically into markdown compatible with jekyll. Right now it’s a total mess, and there are lots of bugs. I hope to rewrite the parser from scratch at some point in the coming months. There’s also a quick and dirty bibtex parser I wrote to convert bib files to html automatically
Sharing buttons: addtoany
Style: inspired by the journalist theme.

I was born in Bulgaria, where I was lucky enough to meet some great friends and mentors and get involved with math and physics competitions. After high school, I went to Harvard, where I got excited about a bunch of stuff, chiefly theoretical computer science, and became involved with the effective altruism community, who have some great (albeit occasionally crazy-sounding) ideas about improving the world. This year, I’m taking part III of the maths tripos at Cambridge.
In addition, I have a growing interest in creative writing and artificial intelligence; and when life becomes too overwhelming, I just sit around and play some music.
