Bryan does research in operating systems, networking, and virtualization,
and dabbles in storage systems, programming languages, and formal methods.

paradigm for applications distributed across personal devices and Internet
services, built from novel OS abstractions such as personal groups, structured
streams, and lightweight sandboxing.
