Michael Lugo
I earned my PhD at the University of Pennsylvania, working in combinatorics and probability. Within mathematics, I'm particularly interested in what large random structures look like. I think generating functions are awesome, which is probably pretty clearly reflected in the questions I answer.
Now I work as a data scientist, which is what they call statisticians when they want to pay them more and sound modern.
