About Tom

My professional interests especially include (1) applications of modelling and machine-learning techniques from computer science to actuarial problems and (2) ways to use technology to support human learning (see e.g. spaced repetition tools like Anki).

I have a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, and I’m commencing a master’s degree specialising in actuarial science in 2017.

I dabble in the history of science and mathematics, works related to the deist controversy beginning in the 17th century, and early science fiction (see e.g. H. G. Wells, Mary Shelley, and Jules Verne).
