Liuba Shrira is a professor of computer science at Brandeis University, whose research interests primarily involve distributed systems.[1]

Liuba Shrira received her PhD from Technion.[1]

Shrira is affiliated with the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, was a researcher in the MIT Programming Methodology Group, and has been a visiting researcher at Microsoft Research.[1]

Shrira is also a visiting professor at Technion (2010–present)

She is a member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), which has recognized her as a Distinguished Scientist in 2009, and the IEEE Computer Society.[1]

Shrira was one of the founding members of the Systers mailing list for women in computing.[2]


According to her Brandeis bio page, Shrira is interested in the design and evaluation of system architectures that provide consistency and reliability without compromising on performance. For example, how to provide high-performance reliable storage in the presence of malicious attacks, how can a scalable Internet storage system support consistent sharing for mobile collaborators, how to make long-lived consistent past states available to an application without performance penalty, how to upgrade without down-time a storage system as it evolves over time.

Aside from technology and research she enjoys outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, and exploring caves.
