Miroslaw Malek is Director of Advanced Learning and Research Institute (ALaRI) atthe Faculty of Informatics at the Università della Svizzera italiana.

Until September 2012 he was professor and holder of Chair in Computer Architecture and Communication at the Department of Computer Science at the Humboldt University in Berlin. His research interests focus on dependable architectures and services in parallel, cloud, distributed and embedded computing environments including failure prediction,
dependable architectures and service availability.

He has participated in two pioneering parallel computer projects, contributed to the theory and practice of parallel network design, developed the comparison-based method for system diagnosis, codeveloped comprehensive WSI and networks testing techniques, proposed the consensus-based framework for responsive (fault-tolerant, real-time) computer systems design and has made numerous other contributions, reflected in over 200 publications and nine books.
He has supervised almost 30 Ph.D. dissertations including three habilitations (ten of his students are professors) and founded, organized and co-organized numerous workshops and conferences.
