Hi! I’m Nicholas.

I am a researcher and engineer at Microsoft. I specialize in hardware systems, interaction techniques and user-centered design.

I currently work on Azure Sphere, an end-to-end system that makes it straightfoward to build secure and robust Internet of Things devices. Azure Sphere hardens low-cost IoT devices against attacks and ensures that these devices receive security updates throughout their life. I currently manage the Azure Sphere Hardware Ecosystem. I develop partnerships with external organizations to make hardware based on or complementing Azure Sphere available to customers.

Azure Sphere is one of several projects that I have worked on in the past few years. Other things I have designed and built include rich annotation systems, network switches, and new kinds of interactive displays.

If you have an interest in connected devices or interactive hardware please do not hesitate to connect!
