Heidi Howard

University of Cambridge, Researcher

I am a PhD student in the System Research Group at Cambridge University’s, Department of Computer Science and Technology, under the supervision of Prof. Jon Crowcroft. My research interests are consistency, fault-tolerance and performance in distributed systems, specializing in distributed consensus algorithms. In 2014, I received my BA in Computer Science from Cambridge University and I have previously worked as an undergraduate researcher at the Cambridge University and at VMware Research. I am probably most widely known for my generalization of Leslie Lamport’s Paxos algorithm for solving consensus, known as Flexible Paxos.
