My name is Zachary Ernst. I’m now a software engineer at a Chicago-based startup called Narrative Science. Before that, I was a tenured Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Missouri-Columbia; prior to that, I was an Assistant Professor at Florida State University. My PhD is from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I did my dissertation on evolutionary game theory, and specialized in logic, game theory, and other crunchy topics.
Now, I’m a software engineer on an excellent team (which happens to include several former academics) that does customized development of applications for a wide range of clients. Although I enjoyed working with students and doing academic research, my work now is much more satisfying on a number of levels.
