Hello world! My name is Reilly Raab.
I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at UC Santa Cruz, advised by Yang Liu.
- Information elicitation and aggregation without verification
- Algorithmic game theory
- Information theoretical basis of learning
- Open questions in computation and its physical underpinnings
I completed my undergrad (BSc) in physics at UC Santa Barbara’s College of Creative Studies in 20151, then spent a few years traveling while reading, pursuing personal projects, and working in software development.
This site is a space for me to
- share my interest in various subjects
- publish personal essays
- communicate about projects or developments which are important to me.
The source code I’ve written to generate this site is published under the MIT license. It is not perfect, but seeks to avoid as much bloat as possible while doing what I want it to. Please, use and hack it to your heart’s content.

By using this site, you are an end user of Cloudflare’s services.
Cloudflare acts as a reverse
handles HTTPS encryption / decryption
with your browser (but not with the origin server at
github.io. The lack of
end-to-end encryption in this configuration isn’t a huge deal since Cloudflare
performs caching and the
github.io content is static).
For all intents and purposes, when your browser is communicating with this site, it’s communicating with Cloudflare. While HTTPS might hide which specific content you’re viewing on this site from your ISP, this does not hinder Cloudflare from seeing your specific network requests for the content of this site.

Cloudflare may aggregate data we acquire about our Customers and their End Users, including the Log Data described above… Non-personally identifiable, aggregated data may be shared with third parties.
