i'm a statistician, right now finishing my stint as a visiting assistant professor at a large midwestern university, currently looking for a (almost certainly non-academic) job. i work in statistical computing, specifically clustering problems, and have done some stuff with image analysis and some applications in forensics. I have a large number of non-academic interests, too, of course.

all right actually going to have to, like, look for a job soon, with all the nonsense that entails. lmk if you need a statistician.

looking at lapack routines, tag yourself, i'm dpotrf

Very poor loop closure: it took 200 years to run on California to properly discover that it is not an island. Michał Kozłowski at
summer school on underwater robotics TU Delft.

anything out there on statistical analysis or machine learning on source code/software? eg, clustering on a bunch of scripts to find similar ones within a corpus, things of that nature?

every single social network needs to implement a "timed mute" feature, and it needs to have timeout options longer than a week and shorter than infinity, looking at you mastodon

all right folks, starting my NEW JORB tomorrow as a data science leader guy or something. i'm pretty stoked.

reviewer response just in, minor edits, no mention of how i'm obviously an incompetent who doesn't know anything at all about anything despite my best efforts.

i'm becoming more and more concerned the longer they put off revealing they know i'm an impostor

while preparing slides for my talk yesterday i noticed that the caption on one of the figures in version of the paper we just revised and resubmitted was not updated appropriately FML

yesss this talk is slagging deep learning/AI in medical imaging

All right, my session starts in an hour. I'm the last speaker in it but still.

i'd understand a lot more about what's going on at this imaging conference if i knew anything about the brain

Okay work for this week: preparing my presentation for this imaging conference!

We teach girls how to protect themselves from predators but need to raise boys who don’t grow to be them. Sexual harassment policies are concerned with teaching employees to avoid liability but should be about being decent humans.

okay i need to figure out the right resources for:
1. statistical analysis of graphs and networks
2. using R for streaming data or just streaming data in general

all right, gotta make a deck of slides for a conference presentation on Friday.

i just want all cryptocurrency to go to zero

all right, we submitted our revision today!
