It's been a long time since I posted! Guess what? I got married! and had a baby! These last few months with my baby girl I have been reminded about the "like a girl" ad from a few years ago. “Yes I kick like a girl, and I swim like a girl, and I walk like a girl, and I wake up in the morning like a girl... because I am a girl.” I can only hope my baby learns how to derive manifold optimization algorithms like a girl.
