Hey there, I'm Bjarki 👋
I'm the co-founder of Dropdeck which is reinventing the way we create visual content and presentations. Previously I was the co-founder/CTO of Twigkit (acquired by Lucidworks in 2017) and a VP of Engineering at Lucidworks.
In my academic life, I did research at the Cambridge Computer Laboratory with Professor Anuj Dawar. My PhD at Cambridge studied the descriptive complexity theory of linear algebra. Before that, I did Part III of the Mathematical Tripos at the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at Cambridge and a BSc in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Iceland. I've co-authored four textbooks on enterprise software development, writing on application design, database architecture and data processing.
