As a theoretical physicist, I spent the better part of the last decade calculating predictions for properties of the Higgs Boson. After it was actually discovered, I decided it was time to do something new.

Infinipool produces software to make the process of transporting and storing data more efficient. We exploit the fact that a lot of real-world data is highly redundant. By finding these redundancies explicitly, we are able to avoid transporting and storing a large portion of the data. For our...functional-programming haskell infinipool haxl servant haskellx
