I was a member of the Host Scientific Committee for the 2013 International Olympiad in Informatics and am currently involved with the Queensland Informatics & Programming Club to train high school students in informatics.

I am one of the developers of Regina, a suite of mathematical software for
3-manifold topologists. It focuses on the study of 3-manifold triangulations
and normal surfaces. I also maintain the Gentoo packages for Regina.
For official downloads for other distributions, see http://regina.source-forge.net.

Gentoo packages for Regina are available in a layman overlay.
Once layman has been installed, you can install the overlay by running

`# layman -a regina-gentoo`

.
You will then be able to install Regina with `# emerge regina`

. Note
that version 9999 of Regina in the overlay will always update to the latest GIT
revision, which may or may not work at any given time.
