(Ex-)Physics PhD Student / Researcher and Full-Stack Web Developer, Stanford
MIT, Stanford / Stanford, UT
Yan: Dissatisfied with my science education in high school, I dropped out at 16 and ended up at MIT. There I got a B.S. in Physics, worked for MIT Admissions as a blogger, started the MIT Society for Open Science, and did odd things like implement RSA in Scheme due to peer pressure. After 4 months as a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow at Stanford in experimental cosmology, I left and became a self-taught freelance web developer. Thinking about machine learning, transparency in research, and ways for science to leverage the human connectivity of the Internet keeps me up at night.
