Paul Nguyen

Paul Nguyen joined Microsoft in 1999 and is responsible for defining and developing an oil and gas technical architecture vision and long-term technology roadmap for Microsoft, shaping the company's technical strategy in these critical areas. He currently leads the development and organization of the Microsoft Upstream Reference Architecture Initiative, an effort by Microsoft and its industry partners to define and expand a common reference architecture as the "unifying language" and a force for productivity and integration in the oil and gas industry.

Prior to this role, Paul worked in the Microsoft Consulting Services division as an application development architect consultant. In this role, he applied his technical experience and deep industry knowledge to support many of Microsoft's strategic customers and partners in the oil and gas market with solution development and in setting development standards for their organizations.

Paul joined Microsoft after nine years developing computing platforms and upstream solutions for major oil and gas companies. Outside of the oil and gas industry, he has also held technical roles at the NASA Johnson Space Center designing hardware for the space shuttle's closed circuit television system (CCTV) and working in the mission control center on space shuttle telemetry processing systems. Paul holds a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from The University of Houston.
