She is an Ethereum Core Developer, the EVM Evolution working group lead, and has written a number of blockchain-related standards. She has founded and organised multiple meetups and conferences, centered around functional programming, culture, and mentorship. Lately she has been thinking a lot about the success and failure modes of different tech disciplines, speeding up and securing VMs, and how dependent types can help save us from ourselves.
