About

This blog is where I write the things that don't fit on Twitter, which tends to end up with a political bent. I submitted my PhD in Computer Systems Engineering at the University of Auckland in January 2019. It was about computer vision and person tracking and machine learning and model fusion and embedded systems and privacy and ethics. It has been part of my identity for so long, that I still haven't really shaken it off.

Now, I work as an investment analyst for an early-stage venture capital fund, and also hold a position as a Research Fellow at the Center for Science in Policy, Diplomacy, and Society at the University of Auckland. Nothing on this blog represents the opinions or views of any of my employers.

I am also involved with the Auckland University Robotics Association (which I founded in 2011) and UN Youth New Zealand rather heavily. My personal website that has a bit more of a CV on it is at andrewchen.nz. Sometimes my friends help write some things and I don't want to take credit for their writing though, so their names are usually at the top of each thing they write.

I used to be a "case-by-case centrist", and then I got called "a left-wing shill". I suppose I'm probably more left-leaning than right these days, but still have a lot of frustration about the left-leaning political parties in New Zealand. I'm constantly learning and finding out more about politics in New Zealand. I am not a member of any political party and have no other political affiliations.
