Hey there, I'm Bjarki 👋
I'm a product-focused engineer and entrepreneur with a research background in theoretical computer science. I have co-founded two tech startups in recent years: Typeset (acquired by SamCart in 2023) and Twigkit (acquired by Lucidworks in 2017). Currently, I am a Director of Engineering at Typeset.
I worked on 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.
