Hello, my name is Jacobus Smit, but you can call me Martin (derived from my second name). My pronouns are he/him.
I'm currently a Teaching Fellow at the University of Warwick, where I also did my undergraduate studies in MORSE. Additionally, I am studying for the Oxford Master's in Mathematical Sciences (OMMS) at St Cross college.
I love computational mathematics and statistics, especially their applications to social sciences such as economics and sociology. My programming language of choice is Julia*, a high-level dynamic programming language which has similar syntax to Python and MATLAB but can achieve speeds similar to C/C++. I author and maintain the TernaryPlots.jl package.
*That's right, you've found someone who actually uses the language rather than just has heard of it!
Student feedback and community engagement:
I was a foreign student in France for a year, I struggled with many things that French students didn't even consider. I want to make the university see the issues facing international students and act upon them.
If you are student, international or not, and feel your voice is not being heard, please contact me via email, Teams, or anonymously by this form.
我曾经在法国当外籍生一年，那时我经历了许多法国学生不需要考虑的困难。 我想让统计系看见且正视国际学生所面临的问题，并提出实际行动帮助他们。 如果你是学生，无论是国际学生与否，如果你觉得你的声音、诉求没能被听见，请透过电子邮件、Teams或匿名的方式藉由这个连结表格联系我。

Just that for now, but we all have to start somewhere :)
