I am currently working with C# (.NET) and TypeScript (React) as a
volunteer software developer for SIL International.
In my most recent postdoc position, I worked with various languages and
environments, gaining proficiency with Bash, Git, Python, R, and Vim,
and familiarity with Apache Spark, C, MPI, and OpenMP.
Previously as a math postdoc, I would regularly use Sage and
LATEX for mathematical
experimentation and dissemination.
The web-programming projects below are from some of my earlier dabbling

Just a prototype; I hope to develop something like this into a slick
This is a fun, visual ways to test one's familiarity with a given topic:
other people's open-source code to make a custom version of their
creation. For example...
I've made two variants of Gabriele Cirulli's 4x4 tile game
256 is a 3x4 version allowing for

Tree of Mammalian Life removes
the clutter of distinct leaves for different species that share a
common name, yet is more comprehensive with respect to basic names
used in common speech.
