# My new website

Welcome to my new and improved website.

I made this website to showcase some of my bigger projects. Occassionally, I will blog about what’s going on in my life, but if you want more continuous updates, consider following me on twitter at @PhysicksofLife. I tweet about my publications, presentations, and things of that nature on a more regular basis.

My hope is that this website will be a place where interested folks can get a glimpse at what I am working on and serve to organize my own thinking.

This website is made using Jekyll pages and hosted using GitHub. Jekyll is an impressively powerful site generator. Given a few template details, Jekyll will build a website and properly organize blog posts and other content with minimal effort. The actual text is written in kramdown `{:...}`

. Below are some examples of what I can do (these are mainly for my own benefit - i.e., for future copy-pasting.)

## Code blocks

```
// Example can be run directly in your JavaScript console
// Create a function that takes two arguments and returns the sum of those
// arguments
var adder = new Function("a", "b", "return a + b");
// Call the function
adder(2, 6);
// > 8
```

## Math

Lorem ipsum $f(x) = x^2$. $\begin{aligned} \phi(x,y) &= \phi \left(\sum_{i=1}^n x_ie_i, \sum_{j=1}^n y_je_j \right) \\[2em] &= \sum_{i=1}^n \sum_{j=1}^n x_i y_j \phi(e_i, e_j) \\[2em] &= (x_1, \ldots, x_n) \left(\begin{array}{ccc} \phi(e_1, e_1) & \cdots & \phi(e_1, e_n) \\ \vdots & \ddots & \vdots \\ \phi(e_n, e_1) & \cdots & \phi(e_n, e_n) \end{array}\right) \left(\begin{array}{c} y_1 \\ \vdots \\ y_n \end{array}\right) \end{aligned}$
