I started off wanting to be a physicist, but kept dabbling with computers until eventually I figured out that I wasn’t going to make a good academic. As luck would have it I got a job developing numerical simulation software, and from there drifted into more mainstream software development. However, I’ve still got a soft spot for all things mathematical, and much of my work involves software for the financial services sector.

I can be contacted by email (akash at this domain), or you can attempt to rouse me out of my Twitter indifference (@akashchopra).
