I am a mathematician from New Zealand. In 2024, I defended my thesis at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington. In 2025, I will be a teaching assistant at the University of Leeds.

## ↦ yescite (online tool for removing unused entries from a .bib file)

yescite is an online tool I created that tidies a .bib file by removing unused entries in a .bib, leaving only those that have been used according to a .bbl file (e.g. when using BibTeX).

Please contact me with any feedback on how to improve the tool (or if someone else has done it better). Send me an email or raise an issue on GitHub
