Hi, I'm Daniel Prilik

I'm a Software Engineering 2020 student at the University of Waterloo

March 31st 2019 - A picture of me at the top of Artist Point trail at Yosemite

At the moment, I'm particularly interested in emulation, systems programming, and OS dev.


This Winter, I'm interning as a Software Engineer on the ChromeOS team at Google.
I'm writing a bunch of Rust code for crosvm, improving shared filesystem performance inside Linux virtual machines.


As a co-op student, I've had the chance to work at a bunch of awesome companies, and wear many different hats!
In the past, I've done...





Every once in a while, I'll write something and post it on my blog.

Some posts I'm particularly proud of include:





When I'm not studying, working, or unwinding, I'll try to make some time to work on side-projects I find interesting.

You can find links and info about some of the projects I've worked on below.


And hey, if anything here catches your eye and you're interested in getting in touch, I'd love to talk!
