Hi! I'm Raf Mertens. I studied computer science and electrical engineering at Stanford. Previously I studied at KU Leuven (in Belgium). My interests are machine learning, statistics, and optimization. Most recently I completed Part III of the Mathematical Tripos at the University of Cambridge where I studied a variety of applied maths subjects with a focus in statistics.


In my free time I manage a couple of online games sites, among which Crazy Games with free browser games such as and . With the generous help of Mayumi I made a Spanish version, which you can find at 1001 Juegos. There is also an Italian version of the games site at Gioca.re and a Dutch version at SpeelSpelletjes.nl. Previously I owned GamesFreak.net which received between 2 and 4 million unique monthly visitors. I also made a widget that lets you add games to tumblr.
