Siddharth Prakash and Sriram Rajamani

Siddharth Prakash works as a research program manager with Microsoft Research India. In his current role, he works with external collaborators, research organizations, and academia to improve the state of the art in computer science and build strong research communities. He is very interested in research in education and is currently working on a couple of projects in this area.

Prior to joining Microsoft Research, Siddharth worked as an academic developer evangelist with Microsoft India.

I am Assistant Managing Director of Microsoft Research India, and “area champion” for two research areas in Microsoft Research India: (1) Programming Languages and Tools, (2) Security and Privacy

I am broadly interested in programming languages and tools to improve software productivity. Specific current research interests include: building new programming tools by combining verification, testing, and statistics, designing new programming models for concurrent and distributed systems, and designing programming languages and analysis techniques to enable widespread use of machine learning by non-experts.

I moved to MSR India towards the end of 2005. Prior to moving to MSR India, I was manager for the Software Productivity Tools (SPT) group at MSR Redmond. SPT was a truly remarkable set of people.
