Mike Barnett

Principal Research Software Design Engineer


I am a Research Software Design Engineer in the MSR Ability Group, having joined it when it formed in May 2018.

I have been with the Microsoft Corporation since July 1995. First, I was a member of the Natural Language Processing group in Microsoft Research, moving to the Foundations of Software Engineering group in the fall of 1999. Then I was a member of the Research in Software Engineering (RiSE) group since its inception.

Before coming to Microsoft, I had been an assistant professor of Computer Science at the University of Idaho for three years. I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Texas at Austin in 1992.
