Portrait of Dave Thaler

Dave Thaler

Software Architect


I am a Software Architect in the Windows Devices and Networking division, and an affiliate member of the Networking Research Group at Microsoft Research.

I am currently a member of the Internet Architecture Board.

I previously led the IPv6 development group at Microsoft for XP and Server 2003.

I led the TCP/IP development group for Windows Vista, where we redesigned the entire TCP/IP stack from the ground up.

I have done lots of work on Automated Network Diagnostics in the past.

I was also involved in the Network Inference project.
