I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Previously, I was a PhD student in the mathematics department at Stony Brook University, until the summer of 2017.
I am also a communist, a luddite, an anarchist, and a utopian. That is, I recognize capital to be the most important enemy of just human life (communist), with technology some of its key weapons (luddite), and I see that in order to overcome capital we will need to replace ordinary states with completely different institutions (anarchist), even though most people don't think this is possible (utopian).
