Portrait of Reuben Olinsky

Reuben Olinsky

Principal Software Engineering Lead


I work in Microsoft Research’s Operating Systems Group as a research developer.  I’m currently working on the Menlo project and spending quite a bit of time tinkering in the mobile computing space.

Before joining MSR in the fall of 2009, I was a developer on the Microsoft Windows product team.  My team was responsible for delivering the Windows Imaging Format, Windows Deployment Services, and all technologies required to deploy and replicate Windows operating systems.  In this role, I contributed to the development of Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Vista.

Prior to joining Microsoft, I worked in Norman Ramsey‘s research group at Harvard University, contributing to the C– project.
