I am a Software Engineeer at Google. I am also an Associate Adjunct Professor at UC Santa Cruz, where I am a member of the database research group and am currently advising two graduate students.

Previously, I was a Computer Scientist at LogicBlox Inc, where I contributed to the development of a smart database system that combines transactions, analytics, planning and business logic, powering a new class of smart enterprise applications.

Before that, I was a visiting researcher at INRIA, ENS de Cachan, and IBM Research - Almaden. I received my PhD from the University of Amsterdam in 2005 for a thesis on the model theory of extended modal languages.
