Twisty puzzles refer to mechanical toys that can be manipulated to be solved and unsolved, the most well known of these is the Rubik's Cube. I have a fairly expansive collection of such puzzles, which is made up of:
- Cubic puzzles that are of a similar form as the original Rubik's cube where each face has N^2 tiles, these are generally referred to as NxN puzzles. These are solved fairly similarly to each other, and past the 6x6 there is nothing novel about the solve excluding the larger size.
- Puzzles that are made from the NxN puzzles, but are modified in shape or the cuts are rotated around an axis, these are referred to as NxN shape mods.
- Rectangular puzzles (NxMxX)
- Cubic puzzles that have different cuts and inner mechanisms, these often look much more striking than the NxN puzzles and, in my opinion, are more fun to solved.
- All the other puzzles, there are a bunch of other shaped puzzles that cannot be too easily put into a group.
I exercise fairly regularly, mixing both strength training and cardio. My current routine is rather boring but I have previously done several sports including:
My favourite video games are:
I also speedrun Fallout 3.
- Borderlands 2
Of course computer science would be on here, would be a bit strange for me to be doing a PhD if that was not the case.
I use C, C++, and JS most frequently; here is how I would gauge my proportional understanding:

I want to get round to learning rust sometime, but never set time aside to do so. I am sure I will eventually.
