Hi, I’m Raphael, a software engineer in Portland, Maine. Recently I've made software that helps Georgetown University visualize the spread of pathogens worldwide, as well as software that helps the federal government distribute billions of dollars to retired employees.
I come to tech from a background in higher education. I taught interdisciplinary studies and philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania for seven years. Before that, while writing a doctoral dissertation in Princeton’s philosophy department, I taught English literature to incarcerated students.
In 2009 I co-founded the public-benefit company OpenHatch. I've given talks at Google and in ten countries, and I published some of my research in this big book.
Say hello at email@example.com and @rafpaf.
