Hi, I’m Louis. Feel free to say hi!
I’m the CEO and cofounder (with Ning Jeng) of Recoolit. We are making cooling sustainable, with an emphasis on the management of superpotent refrigerant gas.
In the past I:
- worked at early-stage startups applying machine learning to challenges in healthcare and financial inclusion.
- used behavioral economics to improve government and NGO policies and programs.
- studied economics at the University of Chicago.
This site contains:
- What I’m up to now
- Questions I’ve been thinking about
- My blog, 10 years and counting.
- An unauthorized mirror of the NAEB database
- My thoughts on Eternal Websites
- The colophon for this site

Some of the links on my site are through Amazon’s Affiliates Program. If you make a purchase on Amazon through a link on this site, I receive a small commission. (The book does not cost you any extra.) I set this up in 2013 because I thought it would be cool, but I’ve made about $15 lifetime from the program.
