I am currently working as a C++ developer with the core team of ArangoDB. We are actively developing a multi-model (Document, Graph, Key-Value) NoSQL database. In particular, I work mostly with lower-level concerns like the storage engines, caching, and performance optimizations.
My primary research interests lie in the design and analysis of data structures and graph algorithms. I am also, of course, quite interested in applications for these topics such as databases, especially high-performance, distributed NoSQL and NewSQL solutions.
I care a great deal about teaching. I make it a habit of sharing knowledge whenever I can—whether it's teaching a traditional course, giving a talk, conducting a code review, tutoring a young student, or scribbling a series of bar-napkin diagrams—and I'm always looking for more opportunities to do so.
I do not have a fancy HTML resume prepared, but here's a PDF.
