About Me

Hi. My name is Mitchell Palmer. I am a second year undergraduate at Yale-NUS College, reading for a Bachelor of Arts with Honours. I intend to major in Economics with a minor in Mathematical, Computational, and Statistical Sciences.

Before matriculating at Yale-NUS, I worked for the Parliamentary Service in New Zealand. While there, I worked at the intersection of politics and technology. Now, I work occasionally as a political technology consultant for New Zealand causes and do freelance software development work for organisations, both politcal and not. Here is my CV/resume.

This blog contains my various rants, ramblings, and reckons. I am passionate about economics, finance, politics, and technology, so I expect those topics to encompass the vast majority of content here.

My hobbies include debating, programming, and rugby refereeing. I am a proficient programmer in Python, R, SQL, JavaScript (and TypeScript), and HTML/CSS, but I have some experience with C++, OCaml, and a variety of other languages. As a debater, I have had a modicum of success, including representing New Zealand while I was at secondary school, winning a variety of novice university titles, and coaching a regional representative team.

If you want to find out more about me or contact me, you can follow me on Twitter at @M_W_Palmer, connect with me on LinkedIn, visit my main website, see my Github profile at mitchellpalmer, or email me at mp (at) mitchellpalmer.nz
