Chris Swierczewski's Website

About

This website once was my online research journal while I was working on my Ph.D. Now it is an outlet for interesting mathematics- and programming-related ideas and musings. I like to share things I find useful.

I am an applied scientist at Amazon Web Services where work I on a variety of problems in machine learning including topic modeling with tensors, anomaly detection, and large-scale K-nearest-neighbors search. Formerly, I was a Ph.D. student at the University of Washington Department of Applied Mathematics where my thesis work culminated in the Sage software package, Abelfunctions. Back then, my research interests included computational algebraic geometry, large-scale linear and numerical analysis, and scientific software development.

I enjoy hiking, backpacking, poker, board games, and fine Washingtonian and Oregonian beers and wines.
