Come for the Foo, stay for the Bar


I love the details. I'm the kind of person that watches YouTube videos about Unix syscalls in his free time 🤓.

I'm finishing up the last year of my physics PhD at Purdue University, where I study the details of photosynthesis using ⚡️ultrafast spectroscopy⚡️. Have you burned holes in your business cards with 100 femotosecond laser pulses? I have! I also write the software that glues together the equipment used in my experiments.

I've been writing Python for a little over 5 years. I decided to try Rust for a side project and it was love at first sight ❤️. I've been tinkering away at things in Rust ever since. From there I developed an interest in systems programming.

This blog is made using Zola, a static site generator written in Rust ("Rewrite It In Rust" can apply to blogs too). The site is hosted on Netlify, a service I can't believe is free.
