Software engineer and educator. Spent a decade in the public research space at the intersection of high-performance computing (HPC) and big data analytics. I enjoy thinking about computational linear algebra, GPGPU, HPC and cloud technologies, and open source software development.
I teach a course on the computer science of data science. Sometimes I post my thoughts to the fml blog. I am one of the main developers of the pbdR project for integrating the R language in HPC environments. I also built and maintain the HPCRAN, which is an R package repository for HPC packages.
The best way to contact me is wrathematics at gmail.
