I am a Ph.D. student in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at MIT. I am interested in developing new methods for data-driven decision-making and using them to solve problems in areas such as climate change, crime prediction, healthcare and revenue management.

Apr 12 comment Javascript - how to quickly construct a binary representation for an array of distinct positive integersThank you! It's unfortunate that there isn't an easy way to make it work for numbers greater than 32. The solution that I came up with is: `groupId = _.reduce(a, function(bin, s){return bin + Math.pow(2,s-1)}, 0).toString(2)` though this outputs a String. Out of curiosity, will JS be faster when working with binary numbers vs Strings?

I thought that you had to load an external library to be able to call `var map = new Map()`. Apr 11 comment How to create a Set of user-defined objects in Javascript with a user-defined equality function?Yes sorry that was what I meant. I'm just trying to find a Map implementation that let's me use the solution you came up with. Do you know of a Map implementation that is keyed by the valueOf() each added item?

Apr 11 comment How to create a Set of user-defined objects in Javascript with a user-defined equality function?Thank you! Two follow-up questions: 1) Since this `Set` implementation uses valueOf, would that also work with `myClass`? 2) Would this Map implementation work? Apr 11 comment How to create a Set of user-defined objects in Javascript with a user-defined equality function?@trincot That makes sense. I'm still very new to JS, so I'm not familiar with `valueOf` (is that just the return value of `myClass`?). Either way, `valueOf` would definitely be an option if I can define as I wish for any of the classes that I create.
