I was the first employee of the company that stewards/monetizes Zulip, and have been involved in nearly every part of the product and business over the last 3 years. I'm currently Head of Product.
My Ph.D. thesis was advised by Tim Roughgarden at Stanford, with Berkeley as a second home. My research centered around analysis of algorithms, and particularly those with a beyond worst case flavor. My masters thesis was advised by Piotr Indyk at MIT.
I'm licensed as a California real estate agent. If you need help buying or selling property in the Bay Area, let me know and I'd be happy to help!
