Full time financial technologist with a CS graduate degree from Columbia University, who started programming in 2008. I frequently contribute to Java, Ruby on Rails and algorithm related questions on Stack Overflow and am active on Github under the same Username. La-comadreja is the tiny but determined animal that inspires me when I attack a challenge like a difficult software project head-on. In English, it's the weasel. I used to study this species before I was a programmer, and published a scientific paper about how members of the weasel lineage successfully made the transition from land to sea. I appreciate interesting and colorful applications of Computer Science that incorporate all different backgrounds.
