I work as a backend engineer at Smartpay in Tokyo, Japan, where I am happy to be writing purely functional Scala.
In my free time, I work on Noteworthy, an open-source Markdown editor with bidirectional links and excellent math support! I also enjoy reading about functional programming and discrete differential geometry.
I hold a Masters in Computer Science from Georgia Tech, where my research advisor was Jacob Abernethy. Previously, I studied math at the University of Michigan, where I also helped with a machine learning class and reading group.
Out of the office, I enjoy biking, long walks, and baking sourdough. Maybe one day I'll make more games. If you'd like to chat, feel free to write me at benrbray@gmail.com.
