Some projects i've worked on that might also interest others.
A slightly personal and mostly dreamy zine series co-written with Helena Teichrib during New Zealand's COVID-19 Lockdown 1, March–May 2020.
Happiness Beyond Thought
A course on withering the personal self. Image excerpted from Gary Weber's book Happiness Beyond Thought.
A web application to analyze and visualize transit data in the form of General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) feeds. A project for MRCagney.
A Python 3 package implementing a new discrete global grid system (DGGS) based on NASA's HEALPix projection. Designed to underlie SCENZ-Grid, an open-source geographic analysis system for worldwide scientific collaboration. See the rHEALPix article below for more background. A project for Landcare Research.
Tumeke Cycle Space
I'm a proud co-founder of Tumeke Cycle Space, Auckland's Community Bicycle Workshop. It’s a place where people can fix, build, and learn about bikes in a safe and inclusive environment.
Asymptotics of Multivariate Generating Functions
Python/Sage code to compute asymptotics of coefficients of multivariate generating functions. To be incorporated into the Sage codebase; see Sage ticket #10519. Update 2016-02: Finally incorporated into Sage!

- Asymptotics of coefficients of multivariate generating functions: improvements for multiple points, Alexander Raichev and Mark C. Wilson, Online Journal of Analytic Combinatorics, Issue 6, 2011. As printed in the Online Journal of Analytic Combinatorics and elsewhere online, Theorem 3.4 of this paper contains a typo. Its hypotheses should be strengthened to require that α lies in the interior of the critical cone of p. Indeed, 1) in our proof of Theorem 3.4 we actually used the interior of the cone when considering the integrals Ij, r; 2) for α in the critical cone of p and on its boundary, asymptotics can differ from our formula in Theorem 3.4, e.g. the leading term coefficient can be half of what our formula states, as shown in [PeWi2010] Lemma 4.7, where [PeWi2010] is the article "Asymptotic expansions of oscillatory integrals with complex phase" in Algorithmic Probability and Combinatorics, AMS Contemporary Mathematics series, vol. 520, pages 221--240, 2010.

- Relative randomness and real closed fields. Alexander Raichev, Journal of Symbolic Logic, 70 (2005), no. 1, 319--330. Were i to write this paper and the corresponding section in my thesis again, i would use the standard notion of a computable real function instead of introducing the new notion of a weakly computable real function, and then use computable locally Lipschitz functions. The theorems all go through with only minor modifications.
