About

Hello!

I’m Irene. I live in London and work for Oliver Wyman as a Software Engineer. I previously worked at Facebook developing the Infer static analyser. Before that I worked at Amazon. I have a CS background but sercretly wish I was good at Math.

I love functional programming, algorithmic problems and thinking about things like motivation, productivity and learning strategies.

Tell me a mildly interesting fact about yourself

To date, I have signed up to 50 Coursera courses, 8 edX courses and 1 Udacity nanodegree. No, I didn’t finish them all.

What is this blog about?

I don’t know yet – my strategy is to write a couple dozen posts, then look back and find out.
