ChongKai Zhu / My name in Chinese

About me

Hi, I'm Chongkai. My motto is "everything should be kept as simple as possible but no simpler". In another form: designed not by piling feature on top of feature, but by removing the weaknesses and restrictions that make additional features appear necessary.

So I am a Schemer, and a PHD Student of University of Utah. I would say my biggest interests are in science and engineering.



Calling Mathematica from Scheme, so you get access to the symbolic computation and graphics library from Mathematica in Racket.
