Dahlia Malkhi, Ph.D.

Principal researcher and founding member of
VMware Research

Slide1


I am an applied and foundational researcher, since the early nineties, in broad aspects of reliability and security in distributed systems.

In 2014, after the closing of the Microsoft Research Silicon Valley lab, I co-founded  VMware Research and became a Principal Researcher at VMware. From 2004-2014, I was a principal researcher at Microsoft Research, Silicon Valley. From 1999-2007, I was a tenured associate professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In 2004 I actually left for a brief sabbatical at Microsoft Research, but was bitten by the Silicon Valley bug and stayed there. I hold a PhD, an M.Sc. and a B.Sc. in computer science from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
