Who is Jhusdhui?

My name is Ori Gurel-Gurevich and I am a post doc researcher at Microsoft Research theory group. Previously, I was a PhD student in the math department of the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel.

Jhusdhui is a long time nick of mine, starting with my very first computer account. This nick comes from an humorous roleplaying article in Dragon magazine, which suggested:

“The best way to name your character is to use the Character Name Generation Table. Roll 1d6 for each letter of your character’s name. This will give him a truly original name, like Jhusdhui the Cleric or Enhifhupwq the Thief.”

Even though it is not likely that the name Jhusdhui was actually generated this way, I felt it is oddly fitting to have this “random” nick for a blog about probability.
