New Website

I started a new website and will stop updating here.

About Me

Hello! Welcome! My name is 蔡醒诗 or Xing Shi Cai in English.

I am a mathematician/computer scientist who is interested in probability, experimental mathematics and programming. Check my research here.

I just finished a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Mathematics of Uppsala University in Sweden. My supervisor was Cecilia Holmgren. Currently I am taking a (hopefully) short break from work at Montreal.

Before that, I did my PhD at McGill University with Luc Devroye.

In my spare time, I like to read and think about philosophy.

I am a vegan and aspire to become an effective altruist.

More about Me

Before I went to Canada, I had been a software engineer in China for a long time. When I immigrated to Canada in 2010, I also worked for an Internet startup for about a year.

My undergraduate years was spent for a Computer Science degree at Xi'an Jiaotong University (西安交通大学) in Xi'an (西安) China.

I grew up in Sichuan province (四川), which is famous for its spicy Szechuan cuisine and panda bears.
