Aaron Smith

I am a Principal RSDE in the Microsoft Research Technologies (MSR-T) lab and an Honorary Fellow (Associate Professor) in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh.  I have worked in several areas including optimizing compilers, distributing computing, datacenter acceleration, processor design, satellite control and data handling systems, and reconfigurable computing.

I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Texas at Austin (2009) and spent one year as a visiting Associate Professor at Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Japan (2012-2013). My research has been honored with an ASPLOS best paper award and IEEE Micro Top Picks.
