“Plans are worthless, but planning is everything.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower

In my experience leading technical teams, I’ve found this quote to be very helpful (and mostly true). Because we are working on tough research problems, we continually learn throughout project execution. Adapting our work based on these learnings requires authenticity and deep-trust throughout the team. Galois gives me a great environment for working with and leading highly technical teams doing interesting and fun work. Everyday brings something new and interesting.


Jason’s 25-plus years of experience in semiconductor design and design automation is being used to help develop a new semiconductor design capability at Galois.

Jason contributes technical leadership to both SoC/ASIC research as well as other advanced computer science research topics such as program analysis, encryption and secure computation.

Jason earned his B.S.E.E. from Oregon State University followed by a M.S. in Computer Science from Portland State University.
