I graduated from Yale University in 2001 with a BS in Computer Science, and came out to Redmond to work as a Program Manager at Microsoft. While working as a PM in the Windows Core OS team, I completed a Master's in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. In Windows I worked on several diagnostic technologies such as traces, counters and the Windows Diagnostic Infrastructure for automated problem detection & resolution. In 2008 I moved to Tel Aviv, Israel, where I worked with Microsoft's PC Health team on additional diagnostic and repair scenarios. In 2009 I returned to Redmond where I worked on Azure. I started on the Fabric Controller team (Azure's compute foundation), and then worked on a variety of projects including Azure as an appliance and Azure in China. Nowadays I work on Azure's availability strategy, including regional isolation & recovery. I think the cloud presents a tremendous opportunity to change the face of computing and I love solving problems related to availability, scale, cost and performance.
