About Equalis


Our mission is to enable the free flow of ideas, cutting-edge blogs, groups and forums, open source technology, problem solving innovation, and job opportunities for individuals and organizations with a common interest in math and math-centric endeavors.

Equalis’ platform is optimized for collaborative problem-solving in mathematics. Users can submit problems specific to their areas of expertise to community forums, exchange knowledge in specialist groups, and the community can be tapped to solve prize-purse challenges posed by the R&D functions of large corporations.

The name Equalis combines "equal”, with Latin origins, and "is”, with Greek origins. Latin and Greek are the classical languages of math and science. Furthermore, "equal” and "is” explicitly reference a key mathematical concept - that is to endeavor to solve a mathematical problem by getting both sides of the equation to be equal. Finally, the concept of equality positively represents the sentiment that the field of mathematics is an, objective, merit-based field void of subjectivity. In this way, mathematics "levels the playing field” providing all participants equal opportunity to stand on the merits of their ideas.

In addition to my main focus at Equalis, I am currently serving as an Advisor for Vicente Partners, a guest lecturer at UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business, and on the Board of Directors of Ask the Seal LLC.
