About Thi

Understand me and share the hobbies
My name is Dinh Anh Thi (call me Thi), a Vietnamese guy who is curious about everything. I start from an amateur mathematician and a curious learner. I like to write about applied maths, apps and tools which are helpful for the human life. I also like to draw, to read, to travel and to meet people.
My dream goes with Math2IT and Tôi Tự Học (Learn by myself), sites for Vietnameses about Maths, LaTeX, Education and Technology. These are different from the others because they focus on the relationship between knowledge and human life. For example, Maths posts don’t talk about the pure theories but about applications of Maths in real life, about the way we can understand maths’ concepts intuitively.
