I'm a physics and astronomy nerd, preparing to major in astrophysics at Swarthmore College, starting this fall.

I'm highly active on Worldbuilding, where I'm an elected mod, Physics, and Astronomy.

I'm a pro-tem mod on HSM and Mythology - come visit! I also do community moderation tasks on any site I can - flagging, editing, voting, casting close and re-open votes. . . I'm active on a bunch of site metas and chat. The upshot of all this is that if you need to contact me about a Stack Exchange issue, you can find me somewhere.

I'm currently reading The Norton History of the Mathematical Sciences, The Equation That Couldn't Be Solved, and Stalking the Riemann Hypothesis.

In my spare time, I look at and analyze light curves for Planet Hunters.

In the end, it was the Sunday afternoons he couldn't cope with, and that terrible listlessness that starts to set in about 2:55, when you know you’ve taken all the baths that you can usefully take that day, that however hard you stare at any given paragraph in the newspaper you will never actually read it, or use the revolutionary new pruning technique it describes, and that as you stare at the clock the hands will move relentlessly on to four o’clock, and you will enter the long dark teatime of the soul.

Don't Panic.
