Oran Looney

Hi, I’m Oran Looney. I do math. I write programs. I science… data? That doesn’t sound right.

The best way to get in touch with me is through email: olooney@gmail.com.

I hold master’s degrees in physics and mathematics, but since graduating I’ve been an Interface Analyst, a Software Engineer, a Director of Software Development, a Software Architect, and a Data Scientist. These days I’m professionally interested in R, Python, data visualization, applied statistics, quantitative marketing, and healthcare data management.

Other than work, I like puzzles: programming challenges such as Advent of Code or leetcode; traditional puzzles like the Moscow puzzles; puzzle games like euclidea or the Professor Layton games. Drop me a line if you want to share a puzzle or game you like.

If you have some spare time and are looking for something interesting to watch I recommend 3Blue1Brown, Ben Eater, or Mathologer. I think these guys are doing a fantastic job popularizing highly technical subjects and encourage you to support them on Patreon if you enjoy their videos. If you’ve found something on this site useful and want to pay it forward, or if you’re just feeling charitable, I encourage you to consider supporting Wikipedia or helping hungry children in Wisconsin.
