Michel Dagenais is professor at Ecole Polytechnique de Montréal and co-founder of the Linux-Québec user group. He authored or co-authored over one hundred scientific publications, as well as numerous free documents and free software packages in the fields of operating systems, distributed systems and multicore systems, in particular in the area of tracing and monitoring Linux systems for performance analysis. In 1995-1996, during a leave of absence, he was the director of software development at Positron Industries and chief architect for the Power911, object oriented, distributed, fault-tolerant, call management system with integrated telephony and databases. In 2001-2002 he spent a sabbatical leave at Ericsson Research Canada, working on the Linux Trace Toolkit, an open source tracing tool for Carrier Grade Linux. The Linux Trace Toolkit next generation is now used throughout the world and is part of several specialised and general purpose Linux distributions.
