Paul Khuong

Team Lead, Engineering, AppNexus

Paul Khuong is Team Lead of a group of engineers focused on improving the overall architecture and low-level performance of AppNexus’ real-time bidding stack. Before joining AppNexus in 2014, he convinced Université de Montréal to give him a PhD in Computer Science for his work on a novel Lagrangian decomposition method for mixed integer programming; he may have overextended his stay in graduate school by spending the majority of that time investigating the interactions between processor microarchitectures and basic algorithms like binary search, and improving type-based analyses and code generation in Steel Bank Common Lisp (a native code compiler for Common Lisp).
