I build databases and distributed systems, with the goal of bringing down the complexity and cost of software development significantly. Right now I'm building one such system with the team at RelationalAI.

  • Optimising Distributed Dataflows in Interactive Environments
    Under the supervision of Gustavo Alonso and Frank McSherry I delivered my master's thesis on 3DF's interactive streaming query engine. We explored the use of delta-queries to maintain joins of arbitrary arity within a constant memory footprint, and the use of worst-case optimal join algorithms to provide predictable query performance on adversarially skewed data.
