My self-summary
The only mention of my name on Wikipedia is in the name of an asteroid. If it's the one that ends up killing everybody, I am so sorry, you guys.

I'm currently a grad student at UC Berkeley studying pure math. I like books and people who like books. I'm unbelievably excited for the future. (We sort of already live in the future, but still.)
What I’m doing with my life
Recently I've started working with the Center for Applied Rationality. CFAR is a group dedicated to developing and teaching practical techniques to help people think better and make better decisions despite their cognitive biases (such as the planning fallacy). They're a wonderful group of people who know some really interesting stuff (one of them demonstrated a martial arts technique to me once that I don't know how to explain without sounding crazy), and I hope to steal as much of that knowledge as I can.

In the near future I'll start working with the Machine Intelligence Research Institute. MIRI is exploring certain aspects of artificial intelligence, specifically the prospect of an intelligence explosion, that seem particularly relevant to making sure that the future is good instead of bad. Along the way, they ran into some math problems, and I'm hoping I can help with those.
I’m really good at
smashing words together to make new, more exciting words. I hear they do this a lot in Germany. Good on them!

walking into poles because I'm thinking about something interesting. This has only happened twice, but I was really good at it both times.

losing at board games to small children. If you want, you can even assume I do this on purpose.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
So for the sake of variety I thought we'd replace those five things with other things. Here goes:

Blogs: Paul Graham's essays, Slate Star Codex, Hyperbole and a Half

Comedians: Louis C.K., Jim Gaffigan, Donald Glover, Tig Notaro

Musicals: Next to Normal, Avenue Q, Songs for a New World, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, In The Heights, Spring Awakening

Wikipedia articles: List of animals with fraudulent diplomas, List of lists of lists, Voynich manuscript, Chicken hypnotism, Lawsuits against God

Drinking games: Cards Against Humanity ("Apples to Apples for horrible people!"), Flong
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how I should budget my time between doing things, thinking about things, and thinking about thinking about things. (I guess that's thinking about thinking about thinking about things?)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I may have recently donated DNA samples to help China engineer superbabies.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–25
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
you also thought it was funny that "strictly anything" is one of the allowable diet options. What would that even mean?

you are a strong independent woman who don't need no man to tell her when to message him.

you noticed and have a strong opinion about the capitalization convention I'm using in this profile.
