About me

I'm an engineer, computer programmer and researcher, dividing my professional life across all sorts of fun projects through industry, academia and education.

I worked in NVIDIA's modem division on the physical layer of software-defined radio implementations of 2G/3G/4G modems.

From 2009–2013 I conducted research into timing guarantees on mission-critical real-time operating systems with the SSRG group at NICTA and CSE@UNSW. I completed my PhD thesis in 2013, which was awarded the ACM SIGBED Paul Caspi Memorial Dissertation Award and the CORE John Makepeace Bennett Award for Australasian Distinguished Doctoral Dissertation. Here is a list of my publications.

I was formerly the academic director of the AIOC, training high school students in the field of informatics.

I was an organiser of IOI 2013 – an international event bringing together the brightest high school students from around the world to showcase their skills in programming, problem solving and algorithm design. Amongst other things, I led the technical aspects of the competition. In July 2013, the University of Queensland hosted the IOI, at the St. Lucia campus in Brisbane, Australia.

Every blue moon I muster the will to blog.
