Professor George Candea, Associate Professor and head of the Dependable Systems Lab, has won the 1st Eurosys Jochen Liedtke Young Researcher Award for outstanding contribution in the field of computer science.

George Candea’s research  is on practical ways of achieving reliability and security in complex software systems. His main focus is on real-world large-scale systems, with hundreds of threads and millions of lines of code written by hundreds of programmers—going from a small program to a large system introduces fundamental challenges that cannot be addressed with the techniques that work at small scale.
