Why hello there internet rando!

I am always happy to discuss questions of privacy, applied cryptography, graduate school, or even completely non-tech topics etc. I am not however interested in cryptocurrencies, NFTs, blockchains, targeted advertisements, or flashy applications of AI/ML that don't really solve any meaningful problems (e.g. I don't want to replace/automate artists) or consider questions of algorithmic fairness and biases. More generally, I am not a fan of technological solutionism, surveillance/any form of capitalism, or things that exacerbate climate change.
