Trevor Pesout

Hi, my name is Trevor Pesout. I did my undergraduate studies at UCSC and graduated in 2010. Since then I've been working at a startup doing consulting work here in Santa Cruz. Last year I decided I wanted to further my education, perhaps to teach at a University, so I applied to the PhD program here at UCSC.. and here I am! I can be reached at

Work Experience

From 2009 and 2010, I worked at CreateSpace, which was an Amazon subsidiary which did on-demand publishing of books, CDs, and DVDs. I worked there as an intern during my undergraduate work and then as a full time engineer until the company moved to Amazon's headquarters in Seattle. Since then, I've been working at ProductOps, a consulting startup based here in Santa Cruz. We've notably done work for Alcatel-Lucent, AT&T, and Ithaka. For the last two years, I've been helping to rebuild JSTOR, the document and journalstorage sytem used by UCSC (and many other libraries around the world).

Interests and Passions

I really enjoy playing games. I play Ultimate Frisbee on the beach twice a week (if you want to play, you should join us!). I also enjoy card games, board games, and computer games. I watch a lot of professional Starcraft 2.

My Publications

I have no publications, but I do bring the heat!

Here's a picture of my cat, his name is Calvin:
