Amir Chaudhry works at Docker, where he helps make unikernels accessible to developers everywhere, and is the community manager for MirageOS. Most of Amir’s time is spent on open source efforts, and he’s a big fan of automation to maximize developer impact. In previous lives, he led operations at a medical device startup, created a seed investing program, and was a board observer. Amir also has a diverse academic background: he holds an MSci in physics and a PhD in neuroscience. When not working on unikernels, Amir is probably looking at the sky and wondering when he can next go skydiving.
