Michael Kaminsky is the Chief Scientist at BrdgAI and an adjunct faculty member of the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University.
Previously, Michael was a senior research scientist at Intel Labs. He worked most recently as part of two Intel Science and Technology Centers based in Pittsburgh, PA at Carnegie Mellon University: Visual Cloud Systems (ISTC-VCS) and Cloud Computing (ISTC-CC). Before that, Michael was part of the Intel University Lablet at CMU. Michael received his Ph.D. in Computer Science at MIT in Summer 2004, a S.M. (Masters) from MIT in Spring 2000, and a B.S. from the University of California, Berkeley in Spring 1998. Michael is generally interested in computer science systems research, including distributed systems, networking, and operating systems. His recent research efforts have examined systems support for machine learning, memory efficiency, low-latency networking, key-value stores, energy-efficiency, low-power servers, and cross-data center consistency. Michael's program committee service includes SOSP, OSDI, NSDI, HotOS, SoCC, and SYSTOR. He was the General Chair for SOSP'13 and the Guest Editor for the January 2011 Special Topics issue of ACM SIGOPS Operating Systems Review (OSR).
