Miscellaneous

Some personal and other details

  • I’m the co-organizer (along with Chen Greif) of the UBC Scientific Computing, Applied and Industrial Math (SCAIM) seminar series.
  • I write (and occasionally perform) computer science-/academia-themed parody songs. Check out my collection of parody lyrics!
  • My husband Nick is also a Ph.D. student in computer science at UBC. You might notice that, as of this writing, we are using the same pre-made website template… now that’s what I call laziness teamwork!
  • My favourite pastime is reading. Here is a list of my favourite books, as of 2018. (For more details, you can also check out my Goodreads profile.)
  • I like to bake (and share the results at work and social events!). My specialty is sourdough bread, but I also like making challah, focaccia, and some non-bread items like cookies, ├ęclairs, and the occasional math-themed cake.
