Hi, I'm Jared Asuncion. I love to solve problems. I am experienced in algorithms, programming, and frontend development. For my doctorate in mathematics, I studied algorithmic number theory and elliptic curves. I am interested in open-source software. I am currently self-studying backend development, and French.
For the curious: Guissmo is my second name and is unique enough to be my username in most places.
