My Writing

Shades of Shamu [tentative]
What the Legacy of Captive Killer Whales Reveals about Us

In this non-fiction book, I investigate our interesting relationship with the killer whale by exploring the topic in a rather non-traditional way. The narrative follows the life of a friend of mine: small-town-girl-turned-orca-trainer. Her world is one of beauty and tragedy. I draw on many books, interviews, and personal records to tell this story.

The publication date is not set; it is a long-term project. It keeps me sane between days of CS research and coursework

Free Range Chicken Farm

"Chicken"

How many slaps would it take to cook a chicken? How can we use the "Fake News" mathematical model to reduce experimental error? Check out this work of satire! 

Clock

"Time" and "Scientist"

Realism and poetry: two things that I tried to explore in these short works.

While I would have approached them differently today, these have somehow won Scholastic Gold Keys.
