I am currently a software engineer at Google NYC working in internal developer infrastructure. My expertise is building large scale distributed systems.
Previously I spent many years as a quant. I did a lot of work on scaling and performance in C++.

My primary research is focused on making a better computer bridge player. I did my MS Thesis on a fast algorithm to find a claim, and my PhD work was primarily on improving move-selection in Monte Carlo Tree Search in Bridge.
Along the same lines, I have a general interest in game playing by computers, and how we can improve them to play better in all categories of games.
My research advisor for both MS and PhD was Professor Ernest Davis.
