If I had to choose, I'd say I'm interested in formal proof systems, algebraic geometry, mechanics, representation theory, computational complexity, quantum field theory and human language. Luckily, I don't always have to choose.
I read, swim, hike, surf, program, photograph, play Sabar with MIT's Senegalese drum ensemble, dabble in cinematography—and on good days attempt to do mathematics. Online I'm dually @raeez and @radix26 on Twitter, raeez on Instagram and—though much diminished of late—enjoy reading Quora and Stack Overflow.
I grew up in Cape Town in South Africa, where a science project catalyzed a move to Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. There I learned some mathematics, electrical engineering and computer science and music at MIT.
I now spend my time in pursuit of the geometry, topology and complexity theory of mechanical systems.
