About Tom

tl_acHello! I’m Tom Larsen. I’m fascinated by challenges at the intersection of computer science, education, and psychology.

I’m particularly interested in developing and improving software to help us learn more effectively and efficiently. For example, spaced repetition tools (like Anki) can help high-school and university students to remember information over the long term (months to years).

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