About Dennis Chen
Hello World! I’m currently a high school senior in the San Francisco Bay Area.
People mostly know me for my work in math contests, particularly with Math Advance, which I am the director of.
My interests change pretty frequently, but some things I like to do as of now:
- Math (though I’ve stopped focusing as much on contests now)
- Programming (Rust, Linux, LaTeX, some sysadmin stuff, HTML + CSS)
- Writing (mostly essays now, but hopefully fiction + textbooks soon)
- Sudoku puzzles (featured on Cracking the Cryptic)
I also did designy stuff before. The first draft of the MAT logo was by me. William changed it to a purple color scheme, which is currently on the final logo. I also have amateurish book, handout, and CV designs, the last two of which have been used semi-often by other people.
- Hanabi is a cooperative card game where you see everyone’s cards except your own. You give clues (color, number) to your teammates so they learn the identity of their cards, and they give you clues so you learn your cards. The goal is to play stacks of cards like in solitaire — the default is 5 stacks of 5 different colors, but this can change.
