My name is Michael Primeaux. I’m a technical architect and software engineer with over three decades of experience specializing in the design and construction of large-scale high-performance parallel and distributed systems.

In addition to providing architectural guidance, software design engineering, and technology trending analysis to Fortune 500 companies, I spent six (6) years at Microsoft Corporation as a principal member the Distributed Systems Group working on Microsoft Windows Server, where I designed and developed core algorithms used by the Microsoft Active Directory service and shipped Microsoft Windows 2000 Server.

After leaving Microsoft Corporation, I founded Six After focusing on research and leading very specialized teams through strategic and high-profile engagements for Fortune 500 customers with particular attention to performance and scalability remediation.

I accepted a position with Vix Technology as the Global Head of Engineering and Architecture where my focus was to form and lead a high-performing software engineering team in the modernization, design, and construction of Vix Pulse—Vix’s strategic and fourth-generation automated fare collection (AFC) and open payments product. Vix Pulse successfully shipped to customers globally in 2018.

My current applied research topics include the design of algorithms in the areas of high-performance computing, adaptive autonomous agents for parallel and distributed systems, computational linguistics, behavioral social sciences, and deep machine learning.

My classical areas of interest include cryptography and cryptanalysis, recreational mathematics, and geometry.
