Software and systems developer, interested in distributed large scale systems, networking, firmware development and security.

In my day to day job I work on open source firmware development, testing, integration, upgrades and deployment. I coordinate with a diverse group of people from multiple companies (see In particular I work on LinuxBoot at Facebook, for which I aim at making LinuxBoot available to as many accessible platforms as possible for the public.

For LinuxBoot, I created in my spare time systemboot (, fiano (, Go library for dhcp (, and some other project, that are now used by various multinationals interested in open source firmware.

Before LinuxBoot I worked on Facebook's bare-metal provisioning automation, and on their DNS infrastructure. Previously I worked on Amazon's active network monitoring, a set of systems capable of finding and remediating network failures and misbehaviours in near-realtime. A related open source project of mine is Dublin Traceroute (

I also maintain or contribute to many other open source projects, some of which are mentioned on my home page, or on my github page, .
