Rachel is a computational linguist with a penchant for obscure languages and a tendency to shell-script her way out of trouble. She only started coding because she wanted to create Choose Your Own Adventure stories that couldn't be cheated, and after a degree in theoretical linguistics, was quite surprised to find that she's ended up in a computer science department for her doctorate. She's written three novels to date, and has been blogging about vegetarian food and travel since 2008.
