Luiz André Barroso is a Google Fellow and a VP of Engineering in Google Maps. His interests range from distributed system software infrastructure to the design of Google's computing platform. Luiz was the first manager of the team that designs Google's computing infrastructure (servers, storage, networking, datacenters) and served as the technical lead of that team for several years. He co-authored "The Datacenter as a Computer", the first textbook to describe the architecture of warehouse-scale computing systems, now in its 3rd edition. Prior to Google, Luiz was a member of the research staff at Digital Equipment Corporation and Compaq, where his group did some of the pioneering work on multi-core architectures. He has B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Pontifícia Universidade Católica of Rio de Janeiro, and a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from the University of Southern California. Luiz is a Fellow of the ACM and the AAAS.
