Michael received his doctorate in Computer Science from UCLA in 2010 and joined Amazon Web Services (AWS) in 2019, following a postdoc fellowship at the Paris 7 awarded by La Fondation Sciences Mathématiques de Paris (FSMP), and faculty researcher positions at the IMDEA Software Institute, Nokia Bell Labs, and SRI International. Prior to all that, Michael completed his undergraduate studies at Binghamton University (SUNY). He has been a teaching assistant for undergraduate courses at UCLA and Paris 7, and has held internships at Microsoft Research, NASA Ames Research Center, and IBM.
Michael’s research enables the construction of reliable software by developing the foundations for effective programming abstractions and informative program analysis tools. Integrating technological trends with knowledge from several research communities spanning automata theory, programming languages, and distributed systems, his contributions include establishing the theoretical limits of program analysis, devising tractable approximations for intractable analysis problems, and building effective analysis tools.
