Benoît Garbinato is full professor of Information Systems at the University of Lausanne, where he leads the Distributed Object Programming Lab (DOPLab). In the 1990s, he contributed to research in the field of distributed object systems, with the aim of making these systems reliable and scalable. He then worked in the industry, first for the UBS research laboratory in Zurich (Ubilab), where he led the software engineering group, and later for Sun Microsystems as a senior software architect. Since his return to the academic world in 2004, his research has focused on emerging distributed architectures, such as scalable peer-to-peer streaming services and location-based mobile systems. He contributed to over 100 publications in international conferences and journals, and is member of the ACM and the IEEE societies.
