Saman Barghi is currently a Senior Software Engineer at Twitter working with the platform team solving distributed system problems at Twitter scale. Previously, he was working as a Senior Software Engineer at Bloomberg solving distributed system probelms.

He got his PhD from University of Waterloo and was researching on concurrent and parallel programming models, specially for highly scalable network servers. He is trying to find a sweet spot between thread-based programming model and event-driven model; this model will use various hardware characteristics and stage driven model to provide an scalable alternative to current available models. He developed a user thread library in C++ that supports x86_64 machines and can provide a M:N threading model on Linux.

Saman is interested in topics such as, concurrency and parllelism, distributed systems and cloud computing, compilers and programming languages.
