I work on projects that mix computing and physics - I have a pile of experience as a software engineer, but my education, way back in the day, was as an astronomer. And it was research in astronomy that first took me to Chile, where I now live. So I telecommute from Santiago, working with companies in the USA and UK. Currently I'm part of a small team developing software related to geophysics - I guess you could call it a consultancy, but really we're just people that understand what you need and then - importantly! - make it.

Some of my favourite answers:

  • Exploring constraint programming
  • Converting recursion to iteration with Python generators
  • Tiling pipes
  • Correlated random numbers
  • Matching integer ranges with regexps

In every case I learnt something new, which is what's so good about this site :)
