I'm a Principal Software Engineer from Austria, now living in London. I have a passion for coding and love to experiment with things. While I work for Google DeepMind, the opinions expressed on this blog are solely my own and do not reflect company policy in any way. Most of my recent work is only available within Google, but see publications for what is public.

These days, I mostly write C++ and Python with a sprinkling of TypeScript for work, with a very long tail of other languages. Over time I ended up with readability in 6.

For my personal projects, I prefer Rust over C++, but Python and TypeScript are just as handy as at work.

As for the languages I speak, check out my post on language learning.

I recently discovered [cached]Wordle, which creates really neat looking word clouds. Sadly, there's no way to automate it, so here's a slightly less pretty one made with [cached]jQClound for my blog. I'm not quite sure what to make of it, but I'm going to do some more analysis when I have time.


Email me at mail@furidamu.org (personal) or swj@google.com (work).

If you want to send me information securely, you can contact me through [cached]Keybase or Signal (if you already know my phone number).

I upload some projects built in my spare time to Github.

If you are a recruiter, before sending me details about your latest company consider that currently I'm a Principal Research Engineer at DeepMind / Google.


I've decided to visualize my journeys, both to keep track track of which countries I've been to and to spur me on to visit more places I haven't yet seen.

So far, I've visited X countries on X continents:
