# Writings

## 8pen

Working on 8pen is great fun, and it has allowed me to touch upon a wealth of interesting subjects, some of which are described in the following article.

## Mathematics

I hope to be able to put some more here one day, especially my pending thesis in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at the University of Cambridge.

- Higher ramification theory, my Part III essay at Cambridge, May 2006
- Ramification in higher norm fields, Smith-Knight & Rayleigh-Knight Prize essay, January 2008. A short note on the connection between Scholl’s strictly deeply ramified towers and Fontaine-Wintenberger’s arithmetically profinite extensions, in the general case of local fields with imperfect residue fields.

# Other projects

Most of these are work-in-progress.

- Mastodon, a next-word prediction engine
- Art Quilts, using ImageQuilts to showcase artworks on the web
- Raspsody, a system of Raspberry Pi computers for monitoring sound levels at Roskilde Festival
