Maurice Herlihy is a computer scientist active in the field of multiprocessor synchronization. Herlihy has contributed to the design of concurrent algorithms, and in particular to the exposition and quantification of the properties and uses of hardware synchronization operations. He is currently (2013) a professor of computer science at Brown University.
