I am a co-founder of Dropdeck, which is making the experience of building presentations both more fun and more productive. Previously I was a VP of Engineering at Lucidworks and the CTO of Twigkit (acquired by Lucidworks in 2017).
I did my PhD and post-doctoral research in theoretical computer science at the Cambridge Computer Laboratory, focusing on topics in descriptive complexity and graph theory. Prior to that I completed 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 (application design, data handling and processing).
