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.
I used to work at IBM, IBM Java JIT, which then became part of the Eclipse OMR and Eclipse OpenJ9 projects.
