I am Pracheeti Nagarkar and am the Program Manager responsible for how .NET assembly loading works on the Common Language Runtime, for all .NET based applications. I understand customer scenarios, lay out requirements and design features to support them. For Windows 8, I am building the resource and localization story for .NET Portable Libraries and improving the reliability of how we load native images for .NET assemblies. Prior to joining Microsoft, I graduated from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. In my free time, I travel, explore the Pacific Northwest, get sunshine and warmth where I can, swim or hike or bike or climb or read!
