About Paul Leopardi

I am a computational scientist. That is, a computer scientist, an information technology professional, a computational mathematician, a combinatorialist, and a bioinformatician. I am interested in all these fields, as well as mathematics education, tertiary teaching, Clifford algebras, space science, science in general, innovation and entrepreneurship. I especially like it when people use my work to do something of value.

I am currently working as a scientific programmer at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.
