Lorin Hochstein is a Senior Software Engineer at Netflix where he works on the Traffic and Chaos team.
Before joining Netflix, Lorin was a Senior Software Engineer at SendGrid Labs, the Lead Architect for Cloud Services at Nimbis Services, a Computer Scientist at the University of California's Information Sciences Institute, and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Once upon a time, he conducted human subject experiments with programmers, but he hardly ever does that anymore, and his books are almost certainly not part of some elaborate software engineering research study, why would you even think such a thing?
Lorin has a B.Eng. in Computer Engineering from McGill University, an M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Boston University, and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Maryland.
