I’ll be giving a talk at the Haskell Love conference, July 31–Aug 1 2020.

I’m a programmer with a background in functional programming and programming languages. I’m applying ideas from these fields to operations research at Target—we’re developing a framework for expressing and solving large-scale stochastic optimization problems.

I enjoy writing and giving talks about CS. Check out my talks and my writing on my blog, Stack Overflow and Quora.

I’m pointing to my screen as I explain something to my partner during a Lean Poker event.
