Toon Verwaest

From October 2007 until March 2012 I’ve worked on my PhD thesis in this group.

For my PhD I’ve worked on Pinocchio, a fully open but safe reflective system for language experimentation. Initially it bootstraps to a Smalltalk-like language.

I just started at Google Munich where I’ll work on the V8 JavaScript engine.
