You have landed at the Internet home of Dr. Edd Barrett: Computer scientist, programmer and OpenBSD developer. I am currently working as a research associate at the Department of Informatics, King's College London. I compose (as in mix) programming language VMs for a living. Most recently I have been measuring the warmup characteristics of programming language VMs that use JIT compilation techniques. For more information, see the SoftDev team website, specifically, the COOLER project page.
