      LLVM is a compiler infrastructure designed for entire program lifetime optimization. It is based on a virtual instruction set composed of simple RISC-like instructions, which provide rich, language independent type and dataflow information about operands.

      Designed and implemented a Java bytecode frontend for LLVM. The static Java bytecode to LLVM bytecode translator supports all primitive type operations, conditional and unconditional branches, object creation, static, dynamic, and interface function calls, array object creation, reflection support, and a subset of JNI.

      Implemented a linear scan register allocator for the LLVM compiler infrastructure project (report). Based on the original linear scan register allocation strategy, I improved it to eliminate the need of reserved registers and also modified it to allow the assignment of memory operands in instructions during register allocation (particularly useful for the IA-32 architecture).

      Aided in the design and implementation of a real-time network monitoring and optimization appliance. The appliance was designed to identify any violations of user specified bandwidth, latency or cost constraints and automatically reroute traffic in order to meet those constraints.

      Designed and implemented an OS configuration system controlled by cross-platform messaging. This exposed a Cisco IOS like interface to a GNU/Linux cluster. This enabled an off the shelf built cluster to look like a network appliance to the end-user (Java, XML)

      Took over a DBMS based automated report generator. Optimized the database schema and moved much of the processing in the queries themselves resulting in a 20x speedup (TimesTen, C++)

      Eventually, convinced management to move away from the DBMS. Along with two more developers, redesigned the product's core to use a custom, high performance, multi-threaded object model that resulted in orders of magnitude performance increases across the board. The product was scaled from an 8U to a 1U and was 10x faster than before (C++)
