I'm a postdoc doing research in high-energy particle physics. I also have a hobby interest in computer programming.

You can find me on Twitter, or check out my blog and personal website! Or you can email me at stack@ellipsix.net.

However, please don't contact me through any other channel about something that should be handled through this site. If you do, I'll probably just tell you to post it here.
