I work in the exascale computing division at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, California. I have a Ph.D. in computational quantum chemistry and undergraduate degrees in computer science, mathematics, and chemistry. My focus is on scientific computing and massively parallel computing, but I have tangential interests all over the place—from language design to analysis of algorithms.

I love Python and C++. I passionately hate Fortran.

I like to make computers do cool things.

comment How to disable Mavericks' emoji shortcut
It should be noted somewhere in this answer that this fix works best in conjunction with the fix below so that the special characters functionality isn't lost

comment iPad app with variable speed video playback?
I've been using this app for several years and I think it's the best out there. It would be nice if it handled playlists better, though

comment Good simple Clipboard manager
JumpCut and Clyppan are also free and open source. But so far for me, only CuteClip has everything I need.

comment Rhapsody + Mac OS X
Rhapsody has a web client and a iPhone app, and the web client for Napster is pretty much the same. Except Napster is a step worse than Rhapsody, since they don't even have a downloadable client for Windows; they have no downloadable client at all.

comment What are your favorite Mac OS X keyboard shortcuts?
@Benjamin: I disagree. I've been using a Mac for 3+ years now and still haven't adjusted. I agree with the concept of adjusting (for instance, Cmd+c instead of Ctrl+c), but I think the home and end thing is just too much for me for whatever reason. Also, I'm not too concerned with how I will work on friend's or library's computers, since I spend >99% of my time on my own computer. +1 for an answer that changed the way I use my Mac!
