I am currently a software engineer at Thomson Reuters' Exchange Traded Instruments division. I work on trading platforms and algorithms, using Java and some Python.

I received a Ph.D. in Software Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. My dissertation focused on the usability of API documentation and on memory and knowledge sharing in collaborative development. My studies demonstrated that developers often fail to learn the most important details about methods they invoke even if these details appear in the JavaDoc.

As part of my work, I developed an Eclipse plugin named eMoose that decorates calls with important associated information to attract the reader's attention.

I hold an M.S. and B.S. in Computer Science from the Technion in Israel, and have previously worked for IBM research and for Intel.
