This website contains information about myself, projects that I work on, publications that I'm doing or that I've already done and similar stuff. Consider it as a basic look into what I do with my life.
I'm Ronald, 29 years old, currently living (with my wife and my son) in New York.
I graduated as a PhD from Cornell
University in January 2011. In daily life, I work at Google,
focussing on video technology. In my free time, I'm (amongst other things)
a free software programmer. The result of my coding efforts can be found
here and in many other places on the internet.
You can find more detailed random personal stuff on my weblog. If you think my software or research rocks, let me know (or buy me a present from my Amazon wishlist)!
I currently contribute to the Libav free software project. Previously, I have contributed to MJPEG-tools, GStreamer, GNOME and the Linux kernel. Information about these pieces of software can be found on their respective websites.
I have also written an iPhone application that allows you to use your iPhone as a remote control for PowerPoint on Mac OS X. For more information on this product, see the PPT Remote sub-page.
In the past, I was a graduate student in the Pharmacology program of the Graduate School of Medical Sciences of Cornell University. I worked in the lab of Dr. Anderson in the psychiatry department, focusing on the development of the cerebral cortex. I completed my thesis, titled "Notch signaling in the developing forebrain", in January 2011.
Summaries from my publications are available on the Publications page. I hope to eventually place my full thesis text also.
