2001 - Li Tsun Moore

By the age of 15, Li Tsun Moore had lived in five different countries across four continents.  His parents wanted their children to experience cultures other than their Seattle neighborhood, so during his adolescence, Li and his sister did home stays with families in France, Ecuador, China, and Japan, staying with each family for one to two years.

This international theme re-emerged during Li’s first project as a Software Engineer at Google in 2001.  If you’ve used Google from a different country, you can thank Li and the volunteer translators who helped internationalize the search engine’s homepage to be available in multiple languages.
 
Currently, Li is focused on Google’s infrastructure, working on Bigtable – distributed databases that query differently from traditional databases in order to simplify performance and add scalability for Google’s applications.  When searching on Google, or using any of the Google applications, Li’s work allows billions of users to access the stored data quickly.  Whatever he’s working on, Li says he’s happiest when he’s learning and can see the benefits to users, whether they are internal or external.  
 
Outside the office, Li enjoys endurance sports – such as swimming, biking, and running in any combination.  He’s completed several triathlons, half marathons, and 10K runs.
 
Li received both his Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and his Master’s degree in Computer Science from Stanford University.
