My name is Tristan Ravitch and I am a software engineer in Portland, Oregon. I got my PhD in Computer Science (studying Programming Languages) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 2013; my advisor was Ben Liblit. I worked on using static analysis to promote language interoperability. In particular, I analyzed C libraries to automatically generate idiomatic library bindings for high-level programming languages. My undergraduate degree was in Computer Science at North Carolina State University.

In my free time, I like to ride bicycles. For the record, here is a picture of me looking pretty cool at the University of Wisconsin Memorial Union Terrace:
