Michael Condry received his PhD in 1980 from Yale University in Computer Science, then taught operating systems and compilers at Princeton University for 3 years. Michael moved to (then part of AT&T) Microprocessor group and worked on several Unix projects, both research and development, including real-time UNIX and 3 releases of UNIX/VME. After this he headed a research group in UNIX Systems Administration at Bell Labs. Michael then moved on to the Computer Science faculty at the University of Illinois where he directed a strategic research team to study impacts of extremely fast networks on applications and their operational environments.

Michael, then in 1992 moved to Sun Microsystems heading up Open Systems Architecture and Standards group. This work started as technology to for software development processes to develop software architectures within Sun consistently. His responsibilities later expanded to include Solaris standards. He served as Sun’s Board of Directors representative to The Open Group and he represented Sun on ANSI CMCEC board. Michael headed up the standards Internet effort and chaired the group to define a new web proxy technology that allows for services to be created “at the edge” of the Interent. This architecture is one of the new technologies to support content management on the Web.

Michael moved to Intel. He started in Intel Labs as the Director of Content Delivery Systems Research focusing on the new ways the Internet is evolving and what products can be created to support this evolution. After a few other roles with networking products Michael moved to the main line product area, namely client chips their architecture, customer needs, with a focus on security technologies particularly with firmware. Now Michael leads the Security Enablement Technologies for Intel Client Security capabilities.

Michael is senior member the IEEE and he is a Senior member on the Industrial Electronics Society (IES) Administration Committee. Michael created and runs the Industry Forum (www.iesforum.com) for IES a program to bridge between industry and research in the IEEE. He also is on the IEEE CCP that makes policy recommendations to congress. He co-chairs the standards committee and previously was IES board member for the IEEE Technology Management Council.
