Portrait of Victor Bahl

Victor Bahl

Technical Fellow, Director Mobility & Networking


I have one of the best jobs in the industry – pursuing un-tethered research, setting the vision, shepherding brilliant researchers and helping shape Microsoft’s long-term strategy through research, industry partnerships, and associated policy engagement with governments and research institutions around the world.

I pursue research in a variety of topics including: 5G (converging cloud & communications industries), edge computing, live video analytics, mobile computing, wireless systems, cloud services and data center networking & management. Over my career I have built a number of seminal and highly-cited systems, published prolifically in top computer science conferences and journals, authored/co-authored over 165 U.S. patents, given close to five dozen keynotes (including a commencement speech at a major public university), received several prestigious awards and honor (including four lifetime achievement awards), and engaged in significant professional and company-wide leadership activities.
