I variously 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 @raeez and @radix26 on Twitter, raeez on Instagram and—though much diminished of late—haunt 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 am particularly interested in the geometry, topology and complexity of mechanical systems.
