I am currently a PhD student majoring in computer science. I have significant interest in the programming side of LaTeX, for it provides a powerful yet concise (compared to HTML/JavaScript) way to control your document. Its simple mechanism really enables one to peek into the essence of programming language and compiler design.

I explored LaTeX3 and LuaLaTeX techniques to generate high-quality documents efficiently.

I am the author of luaprogtable package, which is an attempt to treat tables as programmable objects in LaTeX.
