About me

The Author

My name is Navin. I usually live in Sydney, Australia.

I’m a software engineer with experience in Ruby (on and off Rails), Clojure and R with an increasing amount of time spent with Haskell on the side.

I’m also a retreaded mathematician, data curioso, functional programming enthusiast and erstwhile information security bod.

I studied Computer Science when Z-80s and 6502s were the microprocessors of the day and the university lab splurged on a bunch of NeXT workstations. My Operating Systems class involved group readings of the Unix kernel source. Some mathematicians on campus were nice to me once and 10 years later I found myself with a PhD in pure mathematics and a couple of publications to my name.

I have been around the block a few times, and lived a few very different lives. These include:

If there's one thing that's been a constant, it's that I like to learn - really a lot.
