I am a Torontonian programmer at IBM Canada, working on the IBM Java JIT (opinions and posts are my own, and don't reflect IBM policy).
I'm a graduate of the University of Alberta, in Computing Science. My Master's thesis work was on Transactional Memory systems, which I defended in July of 2014.
In general, my interests lie in the region just above hardware and below individual programmers-- Compilers and Runtime systems so far.
I've also done some work in the area of outlier detection as part of a course project.
