Vitae   Short bio


[ Disorderly Labs ]

My research interests lie at the intersection of databases, distributed systems and programming languages: in particular, I want to know how the lessons from the first may be incorporated into the third, and to what degree this mitigates the difficulties of the second.

Social Media

I have disabled my twitter account. I am not interested in being a character in some racist plutocrat's idea of a ``town square.'' I dearly hope that this will all blow over, since (as you know) I love social media.
