Hi! I work as a physicist. I like to program and paint on the side. And I
like economics as well.
My science is mostly concerned with channeling and manipulating EM
radiation- from RF to visible. I've worked on converting thermal
energy to electricity via emitted thermal radiation, giving clothes
the ability to strongly interact with radio frequencies. I also work on
designing new extruded and thermally drawn polymer fibers.
I've use the following languages:
- Python I use it collect data from certain forums from Reddit to
monitor sentiment. I've also used Python to monitor sentiment with
Twitter data. There's a great natural language processing toolkit
(NLTK) to make the machine learning easier.
- VBA Visual Basic for Applications is Microsoft's built-in
programming language for augmenting Office's capabilities with
macros.I've written a few different macros: one to collect short
interest data on both S&P 500 and Russell 1000 components and another

by pulling data (revenue, capex, etc.) from Yahoo! Finance. (It sucked
at valuing both because the company data was so noisy and because it
was missing information about known future changes to revenues and
- Swift I've made three apps: a Tigrinya grammar and dictionary app,
a Ge'ez keyboard app, and a Tigrinya language game app. More are in the pipeline.
Art should be beautiful. I experiment with xieyi (写意) technique.
