About Richard Tibbetts

I’m currently Chief Technology Office at StreamBase Systems. I was a cofounder of StreamBase in 2003, along with grad students and faculty members from the Aurora Project at MIT, Brown and Brandeis. StreamBase is the leading vendor of Complex Event Processing (CEP) software for high throughput, low latency event processing. The StreamBase software enables developers to create real-time applications quickly using our development tools and the StreamSQL programming language.

Prior to StreamBase I was a undergrad and graduate student at MIT. I majored in Computer Science, receiving SB and MEng degrees. My thesis work was on the Linear Road Stream Data Management Benchmark, part of the Aurora Project.

I live in Arlington, Massachusetts with my wife Aletta, son Patrick, and a cat named Reason.
