Hello - I studied Measure Theory, Stochastic Calculus and Information Theory 1985-1988 and mainly worked in financial risk management of derivatives businesses. I came across OCaml and heard about 'abstract nonsense' in about 2006 but didn't study it and am still often lost in terminology. However, Bartosz Milewski series of videos has been extremely helpful to get going. I appreciate John Baez's evangelism and his ability to link ideas from physics and other domains with interesting maths. Mike Stay's early posts demonstrating many concepts in Javascript (rather than Haskell) were also accessible. I'm interested in the Categorical point-of-view applied to convex optimisation (dual problems), time-series databases (immutable streams) and image processing (convolutional operators).
