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, 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: video analytics, edge computing, mobile computing, wireless systems, cloud services and data center networking & management. Over my career I have built a number of seminal, highly-cited systems, published prolifically in top conferences and journals, authored/co-authored over 150 patents, given over four dozen keynotes (including a commencement speech at a major public university), received several prestigious awards and honors and engaged in significant professional and company-wide leadership activities.
