I'm a Senior UX Specialist here at MathWorks, supporting the MATLAB Language teams. This means any coding I do is strictly amateur stuff, and my comments should NOT be considered the "voice of the MathWorks".

In a past life, I got a doctorate analyzing how people talk and work together via computers, and have worked on planning- and AI-related projects for various government sponsors.

Professional Interests: Programming language design and environments; ethnographic analysis; data visualization; NLP; audio processing; image processing.

Hobbies: writing science fiction; role-playing; wargaming; music.
