Principal Researcher

Palo Alto, CA, US

I am interested in both practice and theory of distributed systems.

Marcos K. Aguilera received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Cornell University in 2000. His work spans both the theoretical foundations of distributed computing and the practical applications of distributed systems. He has worked as a researcher at Compaq's Systems Research Center, HP Labs, and Microsoft Research Silicon Valley. He chaired OPODIS 2014, DISC 2012, ICDCN 2011, and LADIS 2010. He currently serves on the editorial board of ACM Transactions on Computing Systems and on the program committees of OSDI 2018, DISC 2018, ASPLOS 2019, and HotOS 2019. In 2019-2020, I'm working within a VMware engineering group to tech transfer some cool research ideas. We're hiring. Let me know if you're interested in a job that straddles engineering and research. Of course, VRG is also recruiting.
