Dave Harper


My work focuses on hardware systems for the data centers that will be operated 5-10 years from now - how can emerging technologies be applied in the data center space and how can existing technologies be redirected to better support data center and cloud computing.

Prior to joining MSR I worked in parallel computing, microprocessor integrated circuit design, and high-performance systems.
