   National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) School of Electrical & Computer Engineering Department of Computer Science 9 Heroon Polytechneiou, Zographou Campus 157 80 Athens - Greece

Dr. Sotirios Xydis (male) received his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece, in 2011. Then he worked for two years as Post-Doctoral researcher at the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria (DEIB) at Politecnico di Milano. Currently, he is a senior research associate of the Microprocessors and Digital Systems Laboratory at NTUA. His research interests are focused on: design space exploration, high-level synthesis, accelerator design, reconfigurable processors, memory management and power/thermal aware design for many-core platforms. He has published over 80 papers in international journals and conferences, and he has received two best paper awards in AHS’07 and PARMA’13 international conferences. He was principal investigator in several EC funded programs and particularly, the deputy Technical Coordinator of H2020 project AEGLE focusing on scalable and high performance Big Data infrastructure for healthcare. He is member of the IEEE and of the Technical Chamber of Greece.
