My academic interests tend towards computer infrastructure: networking, databases, and operating systems; large scale infrastructure in general and distributed systems in particular. I am also interested in the systems engineering applications and implications of artificial intelligence.
I like the idea of continuous optimization of engineered systems to discover the optimal design for a particular problem, and spend a lot of time thinking about how to design systems reliable enough to withstand constant tinkering and rearchitecting without becoming unavailable as we search the design space.
The general theme of my non-academic interests might be classified as examples of 'elegance in mechanical complexity': cars, watches, keyboards, datacenters, near-east architecture, etc.
