Team Overnest


Ed Yu, CEO

Ed Yu was the founding engineer of FireEye and has also worked as VP and Director of Engineering in various enterprise and software companies. He has worked both in startups and large corporations such as Oracle, Sun, SGI, and McAfee.

Ed graduated from the California Institute of Technology with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science.

Ed loves scuba diving, skydiving, and tai chi but with his current busy life, he spends more time annoying his coworkers with uncommented Haskell code.


Paul Lung, CTO

Paul Lung was a senior member of technical staff at eBay, working on a massively-distributed, highly-available and mission critical index file delivery system that powers the search engine of the eBay auction site. Previously, he was a member of the original engineering team at FireEye Inc., where he was responsible for the critical Packet Capture Processor that drove the game-changing FireEye malware detection engine.

He received his Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of California at Davis.

Paul loves skiing with his son and will take any opportunity to have a big steak, much to the chagrin of his wife.


Michael Lai, Founding Engineer

Mike has worked in startups as an engineer for most of his career, ranging from medium-sized companies like TeleNav and LogLogic to growing out an early-stage startup from five to thirty five employees. The most recent startup he worked at, Lexity, was acquired by Yahoo in 2013, where Mike helped lead the technical spin-off efforts of Yahoo Small Business.

He graduated from The University of Chicago with concentrations in Computer Science and English.

Mike has far, far too many hobbies, and will likely keep doing wushu until his body irrevocably breaks.
