Hi, my name is Alex van Poppelen. This is my digital space, where I write about things that interest me.

I’m a Senior Software Engineer at Google. I work on Google’s network infrastructure. I’ve worked as an SRE, on DNS, load balancing, traffic engineering, security and a lot of data and configuration pipelines.

Before Google, I completed an M.Sc. in Computer Science where I wrote my thesis on the intersection of coding theory and lattice cryptography, followed by a short stint in the security and identity management industry at a small scale-up.

In my spare time I eat a lot of oats, stay active and enjoy being outdoors.

I’m always open to chat, so get in touch: avanpoppelen@gmail.com.
