Prior to Juice, Alan spent 3 years as Chief Architect of Hyperion Solutions, two years in IBM’s Software Solutions Division, and ten years in T.J. Watson Research. His early research spanned materials and device physics, circuit design, and computational physics and modeling. Since shifting to software and computer science 15 years ago Alan has focused on graphics and visualization, component-based architectures and systems design, and most recently consumer-facing applications within Google such as Google Finance and Google’s Blog Search.

Alan majored in Physics and Math at Georgia Tech and received his Ph.D. in Solid State Physics from MIT.
