I’m in my fourth year of the great quest to get my Ph.D. in math. In my free time, I read random articles (esp. re: gender, race, social justice), bake, read math, and take care of a toddler. This blog is for those things (and puns).
Reach me at yenergy at gmail.
I realize that many baking bloggers are also Pinterest users/people who garnish their food/careful and thoughtful. I am none of those things. If you wanted to see beautiful pictures, I recommend any of the gorgeous food blogs out there (I often find myself on smitten kitchen and Pioneer Woman). If you wanted to learn some math written as though you already know some math, I recommend some of the beautiful math blogs (I happen to read low dimensional topology and highly recommend Math ∩ Programming as well as math3ma). If you like my Life posts, check out the Liberated Mathematician or the AMS Grad Blog or Ph.D. plus Epsilon (also hosted by the AMS).
I grew up in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. In high school we moved to Fullerton, CA, where I attended Troy High School and took math classes at Cal State Fullerton. I studied abroad in Paris and Budapest in 2009, and spent that summer doing independent research in Vietnam as well as teaching the TOEFL. I graduated from Yale with a B.A. in math and philosophy in 2010. I got my M.A. in math from UCSB in 2012. I live in Austin, TX with my spouse and child, and I’d like to get some animals but spouse likes to point out that I am extremely allergic to them. Also at various points I have worked for Boeing, Yoshinoya, CTY, New Haven, a Chaplain’s Office, a computer repair place, and volunteered at BUNS SB and 826CHI.
