About me

Hello, my name is Carsten Peterson. I am a third year graduate student at the University of Michigan. I did my undergrad at Yale University. My interests are broad and ever-growing: $\{$things I don't like$\}$ $\subset$ $\{$things I don't understand$\}$. However, I have a particular soft spot for geometric things, discrete things, and computational/computable things.
