about me

I'm a Lead Software Engineer at SendGrid Labs. Once upon a time, I studied software developers to understand what problems they face and to evaluate whether proposed technologies actually make their lives easier. Nowadays, I develop software instead of studying how others do it.


I received a PhD in computer science from the University of Maryland (2006), an M.S. in electrical engineering from Boston University (2002), and a B.Eng. in computer engineering from McGill University (1999). I was an assistant professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in the Computer Science & Engineering department from 2006-2008. I was a computer scientist at USC/ISI in the Adaptive Parallel EXecution (APEX) Computing Group from 2008-2011, and a lead architect at Nimbis Services from 2012-2013.
