I'm michiexile on pretty much every platform I show up on.
I'm an assistant professor of data science, based in NYC. I do research on Topological Data Analysis, with side projects in enumerating necktie knots, linguistics, and whatever else captures my fancy.

I am also bipolar, and am doing a fair amount of activism for mental health in academia and in the mathematics community.
