Mahesh Balakrishnan

Software Engineer - Core Systems

I started and lead the Delos project, which is a distributed storage system for the Facebook control plane. Before this, I was an Associate Professor at Yale University (2015 to 2018); and prior to that I worked at VMware Research (2015) and Microsoft Research Silicon Valley (2008 to 2014). I got my PhD from Cornell University in 2009.
