Jon Currey
Senior RSDE
Microsoft Research
Silicon Valley Lab

I joined Microsoft Research in 2007, initially working on the Dryad and DryadLINQ cluster computing projects. My current focus is systems support for GPU-accelerated computation.

Prior to joining Microsoft, I was at Apple Inc., where I led the team that built the audio and video processing pipelines for the iTunes Store. Previously I worked for Oracle, Nortel and two startups, always specializing in high-performance distributed systems infrastructure. I was Nortel’s technical representative to the Object Management Group (OMG), where I was the editor of the Real-Time CORBA specification and co-authored CORBA specifications on fault tolerance, embedded systems and wireless networking.

I hold a B.A. (Hons), M.A. (Cantab) in Philosophy from the University of Cambridge.
