About

I’ve been with Microsoft since 1993 and with MSR since 1995.

My main research interest is the development of new distributed-system technology, specifically the design of distributed algorithms, data structures, and protocols. I am also interested in the measurement, evaluation, and analytical modeling of systems and networks, with particular focus on statistical analysis and simulation.

My main community involvement is in ICDCS and SIGMETRICS.
