Thank you all for this warm welcome.

A couple of words about me:
I live in France with my family, in Grenoble near the Alps. Since my very first work experience (2000), I have been developing around Search and Java. Federated Search, result clustering, more like this, etc. When I joined Salesforce in 2013, I had the opportunity to start using Lucene-Solr. Exploring the beast as a user at the beginning, and then developing plugins. Since 2016 we had stronger performance goals, for lots of fields and security constraints, and this gave me again the opportunity to dive into the mechanics, the APIs, the queries. What a nice surprise to discover this strong project with refined interfaces, carefully crafted algorithms, and high test quality bar! Soon another opportunity made me work with David Smiley, who advocated convincingly the benefits of open-sourcing. That was a succession of opportunities that led me here, becoming a committer, part of this projet!
I like data structure and algorithm challenges. I have experience in performance/memory optimization. I like team work and I’m discovering the open-source power :)

Thanks again, I can’t wait to contribute more with you.

Hi all,

Please join me in welcoming Bruno Roustant as the latest Lucene/Solr committer!

It didn't take many JIRA issues for Bruno to demonstrate good
understanding of the lower level bits of Lucene by writing a new
postings format and more recently exploring ideas that ended up
speeding up FSTs while decreasing their memory usage at the same time.
We are very happy that Bruno accepted the PMC's invitation to join.

Congratulations and welcome, Bruno! It's a tradition to introduce
yourself with a brief bio.
