my email is shimian dot my last name at

I am a PhD student and NSF Graduate Research Fellow in the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Colorado at Boulder. My advisor is Aaron Clauset. Recently, I was a summer research intern with the Computational Social Science group at Microsoft Research NYC.

Prior to my PhD, I worked as a professional software engineer at the consultancy formerly known as Pivotal Labs and the Code for America startup OpenCounter.

I received my undergraduate degree in Computer Science and Psychology from Swarthmore College in 2014. I was a 2014 Eric & Wendy Schmidt Data Science for Social Good Fellow then at the University of Chicago.

My hobbies include making interactive mathematical toys (see thumbnails or blog posts below) and taking my long dog on adventures, and as of late, biking.

Pronouns: he/him.
