Areas of professional expertise
BASc, MASc, MMath
I also dropped out of (uh... withdrew from) a Ph.D.
Other areas of interest
I’m a native English and 廣東話 speaker, and can converse in فارسی and . I learned French in high school (because† Canada), and know just a little bit of German (because Switzerland). I have also studied Latin and Greek (because Catholic school), and Pāḷi, संस्कृत, and عربى (because university courses in religious studies).
†Nitpickers who want to point out that “because” is not a preposition, please read this.
Note to would-be "debaters"
If you're looking up my profile because you're arguing with me on the Internet, I'm a professional logician. I used to teach introduction to informal fallacies, and keep a set of course notes. If you argue with me online, I reserve the right to use your argument as an example.
