George Candea heads the Dependable Systems Lab, where he focuses on practical ways of achieving reliability and security in complex software systems. His main focus is on real-world large-scale systems, with hundreds of threads and millions of lines of code written by hundreds of programmers—going from a small program to a large system introduces fundamental challenges that cannot be addressed with the techniques that work at small scale. In the past, George was Chief Technology Officer and then Chief Scientist of Aster Data (now Teradata Aster), a Silicon Valley big-data company he co-founded in 2005; previously, he held positions at Oracle, Microsoft Research, and IBM Research. George is a recipient of the ERC StG award (2011) and the M.I.T. TR35 Young Innovators award (2005). He received his PhD in computer science from Stanford University in 2005 and his B.S. (1997) and M.Eng. (1998) in electrical engineering and computer science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
