About

@signal_vs_noise on Twitter

I am an engineer at Google in Madison, WI, where I work on the Andromeda software defined network (NSDI 2018). Prior to this, I worked on the virtual machine monitor powering Google Compute Engine and as a committer on the DragonFly BSD project. My professional interests include operating systems and performance analysis & optimization.

This is my personal weblog. All writing here reflects my opinions alone, not those of my employer or any other affiliations.

In the summer of 2018 I will be attending Recurse Center, a self-directed & collaborative learning project in New York City. I will study discrete event simulation & queuing theory, following Lazowska's Quantitative System Performance and Harchol-Balter's Performance Modeling books. I will write blog posts with simulations & visualizations here - Recurse Center posts. If you're in or near New York City between July and October and want to cross paths, please reach out!

In the summer of 2012 I cycled from Baltimore, MD, to Portland, OR with the 4K for Cancer. The 4K was a unique experience in my life; I met amazing folks and saw such kindness across the country that I had never dreamed of. I recorded and photographed a small part of our journey and of 4K journeys after in an online journal, please take a look to follow along!
