Dahlia Malkhi is an Israeli-American computer scientist who works on distributed systems as a founding principal researcher at VMware Research.[1]

Malkhi earned her bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, finishing her Ph.D. in 1994 under the supervision of Danny Dolev.[1][2] She taught at the Hebrew University until 2007, and then joined Microsoft Research at their Silicon Valley research center. In 2014, when Microsoft closed the center, she moved to VMware,[1] a company working in cloud computing and platform virtualization.[3]

In 2011, Malkhi became a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery "for contributions to fault-tolerant distributed computing."[4]
