Naama Ben-David


I am a postdoctoral researcher in the VMware Research Group. Prior to joining VMware, I completed my PhD in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University. My dissertation was awarded an Honorable Mention in CMU's School of Computer Science Dissertation Award.

I am on the academic job market.

My research focuses on building theoretical foundations for practical concurrent systems. I am most interested in understanding the factors that affect the performance of concurrent programs, and finding ways to rigorously analyze these costs. I also dabble in concurrent data structures and parallel/distributed algorithms.

I was advised by Guy Blelloch. During my PhD, I was generously supported by the NSERC PGSD scholarship and the Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship. Prior to coming to CMU, I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto.
