I handle the orchestration, configuration, networking, observability, reliability and development of distributed systems. Here's my resume.

I am interested in how low-level systems work (e.g. network protocols, eBPF, sysfs); how high-level replication/consensus protocols work (Paxos, ZAB, Raft, 2PC); the history and theory of software engineering; and formal verification methods like TLA+.

My long-term career ambitions are to help design the next generation of distributed tooling. Specifically, I seek to contribute to cloud-native technologies e.g. writing service meshes, L4 load balancers, distributed key-value stores, and orchestration software.


In my spare time, I play chess, read literature, do improv, learn Mandarin, visit museums and attend classical music concerts.

I was originally trained as a physicist. I worked in a lot of labs as an undergraduate, mostly modeling climate change and Earth’s radiation belts. I planned to work in condensed matter before realising I liked CS more. You can read about some of my experiences with academia and research physics on Quora.
