About Jared

The Slice article got picked up by MidtownLunch.

A lot of people have been asking for my favorite pizza places.  The answer depends on what type of pizza I’m looking for, but Maffei’s grandma slice and and Keste are two places that pop into my head a lot.

Someone at the ML forum asked about New York Pizza Suprema, and yes, I love their upside down slice.

Slice has a nice writeup of a paper I wrote performing a statistical analysis of New York City.  The article is nicely written and distills the analysis to the parts people will care about.  See here for the corresponding PowerPoint presentation.

I’ve decided to use this space to talk about math, statistics and science applied to everyday things in new or interesting ways.

This will not be an overly technical blog, though I will make the hard science behind the posts available when possible.  The point is to make science accessible and fun and see how it affects our everyday lives.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog.  I will strive to make it as good and enjoyable as can be.
