My online handle may be Latin (“
something I picked out of a dictionary at 13 and got used to) but my
real name is actually Arabic. Raised in South Asia, I studied at an
almost-American high school and moved to the UK to attend a
thoroughly British university. Now working in the tech world after
encounters with employment and graduate school on different
continents, I travel frequently, speak three human languages (and aim
to learn more), code in a half-dozen computer languages, and still
love to read.
My personal section has several other pages that give a sense of who I am -- among other things there's my public blog, my CV, and some music I've listened to. Have a look at them if you really want to.
Oh, yes, and my picture - it was taken at a ball at Oxford in my
first year. (Believe it or not, I don't really make a habit of walking
around in full black tie
;-)). Since then I've gained a
little weight and lost a little hair, but nothing else has changed.
I can be reached by e-mail here, or if you really want, by regular mail at Merton College, Oxford OX1 4JD, UK. (The college ought to forward it to my current address).
