My favorite part of being a mathematician is being able to work with students. When I started this site my only students were very small irrational overly energetic humans who mostly just wanted to know what time it was and whether it was their birthday.

My view of mathematics is that it is an absolute mess which actively pushes out the sort of people who might make it better. I have no patience for genius pretenders. I want to empower the people.

My first big endeavor to improve mathematics was my PhD thesis, which I’m sharing here. I will use this site to share resources related to math or academia, but I do not anticipate regular postings as I spend most of my time dealing with childcare, worrying about politics, or researching the history of social injustice.
