I was a PhD student at Poly. I worked with the lttng guys in DORSAL lab. The focus of my research was dynamic instrumentation, JIT compilation in trace filters and hardware tracing. Now I am working as a computer scientist in a stealth startup. I also maintain a separate blog on embedded/Linux stuff.
I and and strongly believe in a seamless unison of both. I also click some in my free time and occasionally spin on my lab chair for fun.
I am also a huge and Tolkien fan. I am currently reading The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch.
