Hi there! I am Simon Lia-Jonassen, a software engineer at Microsoft and information technology enthusiast living in Sandvika, Norway. In past, I’ve done a PhD on query processing efficiency in distributed search engines at NTNU and been lucky to do lots of interesting things at UNINETT, Sun Microsystems, Yahoo! Labs and Cxense. I love engineering and playing with equations, frameworks, bits and visual data, which I hope to write more about in this blog. Some of older and more serious writings and talks can be found here.
