Christopher Hansen studied electrical engineering and computer science at Stanford University. After completing his Master’s degree, he joined NVIDIA to work on their next generation GPU technology. Drawing upon this experience, in addition to previous work at Facebook and Twitter, Christopher works on the cutting edge of the infrastructure that powers machine learning and HPC. With his knowledge of traditional data center design and its limitations, Christopher is excited to explore the future of decentralized compute. In his free time, Christopher enjoys practicing French horn and collecting obscure musical instruments, some of which he eventually learns to play.
