As a senior researcher, writer, and performance evangelist at Radware, I research the technical, business, and human sides of web/application performance, and share the findings via countless blog posts, presentations, case studies, articles, and reports. Before joining Radware, I was research lead and senior writer at Strangeloop Networks (which was acquired by Radware in early 2013).

I blog at both the Radware blog and Web Performance Today.
