Izaak is a PhD student in math at UC Berkeley, mostly studying theoretical computer science. He writes about complexity theory, geometry, and programming languages at parametricity.com and makes comics and other art at newchickens.com.
He is currently interested in the limits of communication, "negative" emotions, and VR both as an artistic medium and as a tool for creatives and scientists. He also is interested in the dangers of emerging technologies as tools of increased manipulation (both intentional and unintentional).
And he loves a good joke, so if you know any new ones please tell him.
