I'm a first year graduate student in UC Davis's Applied Mathematics program. I just graduated with my bachelors in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mathematics at the University of Arizona. I spent two years in Dr. Jean-Marc Fellous's lab doing computational neuroscience, a year working for the Coast Guard designing and building a Machine Learning denoiser for distress calls, and a semester and a half tutoring students with learning disabilities through the Strategic Alternative Learning Techniques (SALT) Center. Throughout my college career, I regularly spent time helping peers and friends with their courses, and I take pride in my long-practiced skill of distilling complex ideas into simple explanations.

Not surprisingly, I love all sorts of mathematics and science, and I love showing people the beauty of the ideas undergirding them. I place a high value on explaining concepts in a simple way, interconnecting ideas, and cultivating solid foundations. To get a feel for my passion and teaching style, take a look at michaelragone.com, my blog.

Finally, I love cooking, coffee, and music.
