I’m a research associate at the Dorsal laboratory at École Polytechnique de Montréal. The main work at the lab is to improve performance, reliability and resilience of distributed, cloud and multi-core systems. The method consists in getting as much information about a system as possible through various tracing facilities and analyzing those traces using tools like babeltrace or Trace Compass.
My work at Dorsal is to make sure the projects and prototypes developed by the students in the studies can benefit the community. That allowed me to participate in many open source projects. I’m also one of the authors and editors of the Montreal Systems Monthly zine. The ones I personnally authored are published on these pages.
I’m also involved in Community Wireless Networks and I’m secretary of FACiL, an organisation that promotes the use of free software in the public sphere. In another life, I’ve been a web developer.
