  • Cloud Infrastructure

We live in interesting times, with significant changes seen in both technology and society. With my beginnings in OS research and development, I have experience from both sides of the industry: as a researcher, and as an engineer engaged in product development and on-premise systems. Utilizing the connections that I have built with people throughout my career, I would like to contribute to realizing connected cars that are set to bring considerable change to how connections are formed in society.
