Brief Bio

Prof. Bryan Ford leads the Decentralized/Distributed Systems (DEDIS) lab at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), formerly the DeDiS group at Yale University. Ford focuses broadly on building secure decentralized systems, touching on topics including private and anonymous communication technologies, Internet architecture, and secure operating systems. He received the Jay Lepreau Best Paper Award at OSDI, and grants from NSF, DARPA, and ONR, including the NSF CAREER award. His pedagogical achievements include PIOS, the first OS course leading students through the development of a working, native multiprocessor OS kernel. Ford earned his B.S. at the University of Utah and his Ph.D. at MIT, then joined the faculty of Yale University in 2009 before moving to EPFL in 2015.


I am always looking for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and undergraduate interns. I will also be in search of support staff for my new lab at EPFL: at least one software engineering position, and a group/event manager position, details to be posted in the coming months. Feel contact me if you think you have the right skills and relevant interests.

Two Principles of Deadlines:
1. All deadlines converge on the same day—Deadline Day.
2. Every day is Deadline Day.
