I am interested in large-scale data management, distributed systems, and data-intensive computing.
The Stanford Future Data Systems research group is growing!
Bio: Peter Bailis will join Stanford Computer Science as an assistant professor in 2016. His dissertation research at UC Berkeley examined coordination avoidance—the use of as little coordination as possible while ensuring application integrity—in large scale transaction processing, data serving, and statistical analytics tasks. He is the recipient of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, the Berkeley Fellowship for Graduate Study, and best-of-conference citations for research appearing in SIGMOD and VLDB. He received his A.B. in Computer Science from Harvard College in 2011, where he also received the CRA Outstanding Undergraduate Researcher Award.
Our group's research is generously supported in part by Toyota.
I'm honored to be included in the 2016 Forbes 2016 "30 under 30" in Enterprise Technology. Thanks, Forbes!
I wrote a new post on why I enjoyed graduate school.
Our research group site is live!
Readings in Database Systems, 5th Edition, co-edited with Joe Hellerstein and Mike Stonebraker is now online at redbook.io.
I'm talking at GOTO Chicago in May 2016.
Thanks to Toyota for generously supporting our ongoing research on systems for scalable anomaly detection.
I'm excited to join the editorial board of ACM Queue and help lead a new section on research in practice.
I've posted my Ph.D. thesis! Many thanks to all who helped make this possible.
We posted a write-up of our experiences and thoughts regarding asynchronous distributed optimization within a dataflow framework on the arXiv.
I talked at StrangeLoop about "When Worst is Best (in Distributed Systems Design)"; check out the deck and video!
I'm looking for graduate students!
In light of upcoming graduate student fellowship deadlines, I posted about and shared my NSF GRFP materials.
Posted slide decks from MesosCon (keynote video) and SIGMOD on coordination-avoiding systems design and concurrency control in open source applications.
Relocated to Cambridge, MA for the year.
I'm giving a keynote at MesosCon 2015 (August 20-21 in Seattle) on "Silence is Golden: Coordination-Avoiding Systems Design."
I'll be spending next year visiting the MIT CSAIL DB and systems groups.
I'll be speaking at Strange Loop 2015 (September 24-26 in St. Louis) on "When Worst is Best (in Distributed Systems Design)."
Accepted a tenure-track assistant professor position with Stanford Computer Science!
