Nik Bougalis

What I'm doing

I am a senior software engineer and cryptographer at Ripple, working on real-time settlement solutions that will allow real-time low-cost international payments over a global settlement network. Check out the rippled GitHub repo.

What I've done

A lot! I co-founded CodeLaboratories, a successful software and hardware company which makes the DUO3D stereo camera. Over the past twenty years, I have developed just about everything — from shiny user interfaces to low-level kernel drivers. I've worked on servers that handle tens of thousands of users, caching software that accelerates hard drives using SSDs and encrypted distributed storage & backup systems.

My Interests

My interests are diverse. Currently I'm focused on cryptography, security, static software analysis, software integrity and protection and secure cloud computing and storage.
