Hi. I'm


I'm a student who loves learning about the universe. I enjoy solving puzzles, playing piano, going on hikes, and binging Wikipedia.

I'm always down to meet new people and go on adventures, so if you want to say hi please email me(but don't spam me)@derikk.com!

What I'm up to

I'm doing research with Stuart Geman on neural net architectures and helping to prepare notes for a course on probabilities in quantum mechanics. Also, I'm trying to make my way through Gödel, Escher, Bach — or at least the first few chapters of it.
