Education and career

Attiya was educated at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, earning a B.S. in mathematics and computer science in 1981, a master's degree from the same university in 1983, and a doctorate in 1987, under the supervision of Danny Dolev.[2] After postdoctoral studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, she joined the Technion faculty in 1990.[2]

She has been the editor-in-chief of the journal Distributed Computing since 2008.[2][3]

Awards and honors

Attiya became a fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery in 2009 for "contributions to distributed and parallel computing".[4]

In 2011, Attiya and her co-authors Danny Dolev and Amotz Bar-Noy won the Edsger W. Dijkstra Prize in Distributed Computing for their work on implementing shared memory using message passing, published in the Journal of the ACM in 1995.[5] She was also the recipient of the Michael Bruno Memorial Award from Yad Hanadiv in 2011.[6]
