I am an engineer, a researcher and an entrepreneur


I am an engineer at heart. I work as a Software Engineer at the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) at National Optical Astronomy Observatory (NOAO) in beautiful sunny Tucson, Arizona. I build cool software for astronomy.


Apart from my day job as a Software Engineer I spend my time working towards a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Arizona. My research areas include Extremely Large Databases and Dynamic Resource Allocation and Management.


And at the end I am a little entrepreneurial too. I like making cool gadgets with arduino boards and love iPhone programming. My latest obsession is making something cool with the Raspberry Pi. I also built the first facebook chat application in 2007 called Mosoto.
