I'm a historian of mathematics currently teaching in Union's Math Department and doing research on the history of mathematical sciences (including astronomy and sister disciplines in pre-modern period), particularly in the Classical Sanskrit tradition of India. I like programming in Perl, TeX and Sage. For Makerspaces I do various forms of needlework and have also held workshops on bicycle maintenance. I have kind of a fangirl crush on Richard Stallman.
