One of my current interests is the development and the application of software to solve problems that involve massive amounts of data and computation. I am particularly concerned with scientific problems like those described in the Fourth Paradigm book. What software do scientists –who are not computer scientists– need to do data-intensive science?
In my short time at Microsoft, I have had great fun working on a series of interesting and often vastly different projects. These include: e-science in the cloud using Windows Azure; DryadLINQ with Dryad on Windows HPC clusters; Terapixel as well as other visualizations and tools for WorldWide Telescope; functional programming in the browser with Try F#; and Microsoft Translator Hub.
