Professor Boaz Patt-Shamir


Boaz Patt-Shamir is a professor of Computer Science in the School of Electrical Engineering in Tel Aviv University, where he directs the Lab of Distributed Computing. Prior to that he was an assistant professor in Northeastern University. He also was a researcher in the Cambridge Research Lab of HP labs. 



My research is in the area of Network Algorithms.​ This includes distributed algorithms deployed in networks and centralized algorithms used to design, operate and analyze networks.

One of the directions of my current research is understanding the cloud. For example, how can the cloud be integrated with distributed systems? How can the cloud be used as a means for communication? Another set of problems is about cloud management, e.g., job placement.

I have also worked on self stabilization, overflow management, recommender systems and other algorithmic topics.

At the undergraduate level, I have been teaching Operating Systems and Computer Networks, and some theory classes.
