I am a passionate FLOSS hacker, lead maintainer of the ScanCode toolkit and on a mission to make it easier and safer to reuse FLOSS code.

I co-maintain ScanCode and other related open source tools for open source discovery, analysis & license compliance at including TraceCode to trace builds; upcoming new tools to build FLOSS code indexes and matching efficiently against indexed code; and another emerging tool to reliably map known security vulnerabilities to software packages.

I contribute to several other projects including most recently and proudly to the Linux kernel SPDX-ification; SPDX, ClearlyDefined, a bit strace, many Python-based tools, formerly to JBoss, Eclipse and Mozilla. I have been a long time GSoC mentor and org admin.

Work-wise, I am the CTO of nexB. We help software teams track what's in their code with DejaCode, a compliance dashboard with curated data, policies, workflows and automation for license compliance and open source governance; and with professional services (with expertise in complex devices and binary analysis).
