Ruben Vermeersch

Ruben is a GNOME hacker focussing on F-Spot and Banshee. His dream is to build the ideal photographers platform for the GNOME desktop. He participated in the Google Summer of Code for GNOME in 2007 and 2008, working on F-Spot. You can find him on IRC under the nick rubenv and at GUADEC for in person chats.

Apart from hacking, he works as a PhD Researcher at the Distrinet Research Group of the university of Leuven, Belgium. His main research topics are scalability, performance and middleware platforms in the cloud.

Away from the computer, he enjoys photography (hence the interest in photography on the free desktop), reading books, travelling and he is fascinated by science, history and art. He would love to spend more time on sport, especially swimming, but consistently fails to do so.
