Portrait of Tom Zimmermann

Tom Zimmermann

Sr. Principal Researcher


Welcome. My name is Thomas “TomZ” Zimmermann and since November 2008, I am a Researcher at Microsoft Research in Seattle, USA. In addition, I am an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Calgary. I received my PhD from Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany.

My research focuses on improving programmer productivity and I developed techniques and tools that make both managers and developers aware of history. Learning from past successes and failures will help us to create better software.
