Software Engineer

#

Most of my work has been at the intersection of software design and software engineering. I am what some people call a product-minded software engineer.

#

I believe that we need to move the focus of software engineering away from the design of formal representations of programs and towards the design of conceptual solution to real-world problems. My research agenda expands on my views on software engineering.

#

I had the chance to work with diverse software organizations. I started my career as software engineer and program manager at large corporations (Microsoft, Amazon). I was a software consultant for several years with Cognitect. More recently, I have been working with startups.

#

My most recent projects involved Clojure, Datomic, JavaScript, and Amazon Web Services (AWS). While I enjoy working with good tools, I believe that a focus on design, the software development process and the culture of the organization have a bigger impact on the success of a project.

#

I live in Tallahassee, Florida (US Eastern Time, GMT-5) and not planning to relocate.

#

I graduated in 2006 from ENSEEIHT with a Master in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics.
