Mathieu Desnoyers is the maintainer of the Linux Trace Toolkit (LTT) project since November 2005, taking over the development with the new LTTng. He is the author of Linux Trace Toolkit Next Generation (LTTng) and the main developer of Linux Trace Toolkit Viewer (LTTV) since the project started in 2003. He worked in close collaboration with Google, IBM research and Autodesk Entertainment. For the past year, he has focused on preparing the ground for mainlining a tracer in the Linux kernel. Parts of the LTTng project has been integrated into the mainline kernel : the Linux Kernel Markers in kernel 2.6.24 and the Tracepoints in kernel 2.6.28-rc1. He is currently completing a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering at Ecole Polytechnique de Montréal.

Along his journey in the kernel tracing world, he developed great interest for synchronization primitives and high-scalability.
