Throw All Things Away

Hello! My name is 蔡醒诗 or Xing Shi Cai in English. (See here if you want to know how to say my name.) Welcome to my new home on the Internet! (Here is my old home.)

About me

I am a mathematician/computer scientist who is interested in probability, combinatorics, experimental mathematics and programming.

Recently, I moved Kunshan, China for a position of Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Duke Kunshan University.

In my spare time, I like to read. My favourite authors include Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, Seneca, Peter Singer, Massimo Pigliucci, and Mary Oliver. I write a blog (mostly) about books which I like.

I am a vegan, I donate regularly to effective charities, and I am very concerned about climate change.
