Sam Speight


Short bio

I currently live in Oxford with my wife, Julia, who is a teacher of Classics (so we both like using Greek letters).

Before coming to Oxford, I spent two happy years across the Pond in Pittsburgh, PA completing an MS in Logic, Computation and Methodology at Carnegie Mellon (as well as supping Yuengling and cheering on the Pirates — closest thing I could find to cricket).

My undergraduate degree was an MSci in Physics and Philosophy from Bristol.

I was born in Hexham, in the North East of England (hence my love of Newcastle United FC), but grew up in the wonderful Cathedral City of Lichfield.

I like cricket, music (listening, playing and writing/arranging, especially jazz), cooking and walking.
