my name is elias julian marko garcia, and i am a senior at umkc studying computer science with a minor in mathematics. i graduate in may of 2020.

people have described my background and demographic as non-traditional for computer science.

my interests

...are varied. you will probably find me reading about or working on projects involving:

  • programming languages and PLT
  • systems programming
  • software design and safety
  • computational social science

in a previous life, i studied financial, monetary, and institutional economics. a lot has changed since then and so have i, but my passion for these topics have only grown more intense. maybe one day i'll give them the focus they deserve.

if you've read this far, you may be interested in my cv (of sorts).
