Portrait of Daniel Cletheroe

Daniel Cletheroe

Principal Hardware Engineer


I am a Principal Hardware Engineer in the cloud infrastructure team at Microsoft Research, Cambridge, UK.  I am currently working on optical storage, and previously optical networking.  

My background is radio and microwave frequency electronics, and I am engaged in all aspects of electronic system, simulation, circuit, and board level design.  Designs I have worked on cover high speed, low power, low noise sensing, electro-optical, signal processing, and embedded systems including writing firmware to run on microprocessors and FPGAs in these systems.

At Microsoft I was previously in the human experience and design group in a team exploring connected play – prototyping and developing novel technologies that enable new forms of play, social, and entertainment experiences.
