Austin, TX - Resume
My name is Derek Smith. I geek out over numbers, data, code, games, sports & physics.
Early on I found I had a fascination with analyzing, describing and modeling systems. I thank my parents for supplying me with an endless supply of Legos growing up which fostered this fascination into something tangible. I tend to view complex systems (code, nuclear reactors, PDEs) as well designed Lego sets, each individual piece serving a critical role that when combined with the other pieces forms a detailed model. Because of this I have a knack for focusing in on one small piece of a system while still considering the effect of that component on the system as a whole. This is why I find Physics, Math and Code so enjoyable.
