James Larisch

Hello! I’m a computer science PhD student at Harvard University, advised by Prof. Eddie Kohler. My research sits at the crowded and often confusing intersection of web infrastructure, security, programming languages, and systems performance.

I enjoy Brazilian jiu jitsu, playing piano, reading long novels, and simple personal websites that load almost instantly.
