From the School of Computer Science and Department of Psychology at McGill University, I marvel at the world through algorithmic lenses. My specific interests are in quantum computing, evolutionary game theory, modern evolutionary synthesis, and theoretical cognitive science. Previously I was at the Institute for Quantum Computing and Department of Combinatorics & Optimization at the University of Waterloo and a visitor to the Centre for Quantum Technologies at the National University of Singapore.

comment Food sharing and mutual aid among the homeless
Thanks @TomášZato, if I wanted a more general question then I would have asked that more general question. You are, of course, welcome to ask the more general question as your own. I am familiar with the answer to this question in various other settings, but also know that such behaviors are very culture specific, and so I want an answer for this specific (although still very heterogeneous) group if possible.

comment Do Jewish people have better cognitive abilities than average population?
Why would you expect 'cognitive abilities' to be important for being (over)represented in politics or science, over say 'economic privilege' or 'small sample bias' or 'cultural/historic coincidence'?
