I am a fifth-year graduate student in the Mathematics Ph.D. program at the University of Pennsylvania. I received my undergraduate degree in Maths and Stats from The University of the Witwatersrand. I grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa. .

I stole the source code for this website from Shanshan Ding and got a lot of help modifying it from Matthew Wright and Matthew Tai
