Geva Patz is primarily responsible for the technology and development aspects of Android Alpha. He holds an MS from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where his research focused on using high performance cluster computing to model quantum computation (a computing problem that makes handling real time options market data look trivial by comparison).
