I’m a Software Engineer currently working at ShiftForward, where I’m involved in the development of large-scale systems for the online advertising industry. My interests in computer science usually revolve around artificial intelligence, machine learning, data mining, algorithms, data structures and programming language theory. I tend to read, mostly computer science textbooks and science-fiction novels. I listen to and collect a lot of music. I have a tendency for electronic, experimental and indie music and I’m very fond of what people call intelligent dance music. I play and collect a lot of computer games as well. I like indie, difficult and puzzle-related games, but end up playing a lot of different genres. I make an effort to keep as much of the code I write open-source. I also take photos.

In case you’re interested, you can grab my CV. You can contact me through email, twitter or IRC. I usually lurk in the freenode network under the jcazevedo handle.
