Course information for the 2021/2022 academic year:
I will be teaching MA703 “Statistical Analysis of Network Data” during the Fall 2021 semester.
In addition, in the non-academic realm, I teach Wu style tai chi chuan at Marsh Chapel on Wednesdays.
The following is central to my perspective on the process of learning:
The fish trap exists because of the fish; once you’ve gotten the fish, you can forget the trap. The rabbit snare exists because of the rabbit; once you’ve gotten the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words exist because of meaning; once you’ve gotten the meaning, you can forget the words. Where can I find a man who has forgotten words so I can have a word with him ?”
— Chuang Tzu
