I'm a system architect at the RIPE NCC, where I work in the science group. I'm a chemist by training, but have been working since 1998 on Internet related things, as a sysadmin, security consultant, web developer and researcher. I am interested in technology changes (like IPv6 deployment), Internet measurement, data analysis, data visualization and security. When I'm not working I like to play electric guitar and run in circles, while listening to music.

This article shows some prototypes of visualising network outages with RIPE Atlas using CartoDB.
