Hi. I'm a software engineer living in Seattle (previously SF). I'm interested in distributed systems, databases, operating systems, programming languages, and security. I'm best known for my PhD work on Raft, a distributed consensus algorithm designed to be easy to understand.
After a few years in both large and small companies in industry, I'm currently self-employed. At this stage (in July 2021), I'm thinking through and prototyping ideas. I hope to share more once I've settled on an idea!
