My name is Jeremy Kun. I’m currently an engineer at Google. I earned a PhD in mathematics from the University of Illinois at Chicago, where my advisor was Lev Reyzin. I did my undergraduate degree at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in mathematics and computer science. I have a thorough background in computer science, but my most exciting experiences there always stemmed from elegant (and uncoincidentally mathematical) solutions to programming problems. This blog is a presentation of the interesting solutions I come across, and an exploration of the deeper mathematical ideas therein. Most often this means exploring the mathematical structure of a problem to lubricate the cogs of algorithm design. In seldom cases, this involves using programs to reason about mathematical theory.
