I am a Researcher and Lecturer in the Computer Systems group at LIACS. My research interests are optimizing compilers, program transformation, database systems, sparse matrices, data structure generation, and parallel and distributed computing. I have professional experience as Lead Software Engineer and I am especially experienced in shared library maintenance (API and ABI compatibility) and working on open source software in open communities. In the past I have been part of the  GTK+ development team for over a decade.
