Pedro Las-Casas

Research SDE 2


I am a Research Software Engineer on the Cloud Efficiency team in the Systems Research Group at MSR. My current focus is on on Resource Central (ML prediction-serving System for Azure).

I hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science from UFMG (Brazil), in which my thesis focused on investigating biased distributed tracing sampling. During my Ph.D., I spent some time as visiting research fellow at Brown University, and a research intern at MPI-SWS (Germany). Before my Ph.D., I received my master’s in Computer Science from UFMG and my bachelor’s degree from PUC Minas.
