I'm a PhD student in biomathematics, working on stochastic individual-based models of evolution in spatially structured populations. My other interests include cryptography, programming games and puzzles, photography and graphic design.

Vote for me in the Mathematics.SE 2014 moderator election!


I'm the main author and maintainer of the Stack Overflow Unofficial Patch (SOUP), a user script for browsers with GreaseMonkey-compatible user script support (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, possibly Safari) that fixes or works around a number of outstanding issues with the Stack Exchange user interface.

I tend to answer a lot more questions than I ask. Some answers I'm rather proud of:

CC-Zero Please consider any (original) code I post to Stack Overflow and other Stack Exchange sites to be released under CC-Zero unless stated otherwise. You may do whatever you want with it and don't have to credit me in any way, although of course that would be nice.

comment Review queues – bypassing/shunning “honeypot” stuff
Yeah, detecting review audits is pretty trivial: you can find the code to do it on MSE, if you dig around a bit, and it's about three lines of jQuery. That said, it's also rumored that the SE staff has tools for detecting people who use such tricks to robo-review.

comment Stack Overflow Unofficial Patch
@IulianOnofrei: Sometimes they do. I am kind of hoping that some day, some SE dev will sit down and look through the SOUP source code for fixes to apply officially. The CSS fixes are particularly easy, most of them could just be copy-pasted directly into the appropriate SE style sheets (hint, hint!).
