I am a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Michigan and a cartoonist. My Ph.D was in Applied Mathematics. I'm drawn to mathematical art for both the visual appeal of art generated algorithmically and the space of all possible outputs of the code given different inputs, which is a sort-of meta-art. For this reason, I try to make as much of the source code for my art available as possible.

Conformal mappings are lovely; this piece shows conformal mappings of the plane tiled by the center image. The code used to generate this piece, adaptable for any image in the tiling, is available at https://github.com/ojwalch/cool-warps/.
