Collider experiments, aggregating petabytes of relational and non-relational data sources. In 2012, he transitioned to Cloudant,
the managed NoSQL database service for fast-growing Web and mobile apps. Simon’s physics background informs his work at Cloudant,
where he designs software and creates educational material to help developers interact directly with massive datasets.
