San Francisco, CA
I have a BS in Physics and currently work in an MRI brain lab. I've been learning a lot of basic signal processing on time series and imaging.
I've also been working with parametric stats and learning as much as possible about classical stats.
I experiment with and build basic electronic circuits both digital and analog at home. I'm a die hard Python user now, having moved away from MATLAB and not looking back.
OOP is important to me, as the best numerical programmers I've seen know how to use to great effect. I don't know very much OOP yet but always looking for good scientific applications.
I do not however, care much for tradition non scientific programming and/or web services development.
I use Fedora 18 at work and Mint 13 at home.
