Welcome to my webpage! I am an assistant professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at MIT, where I lead the SAIL group.
Previously, I was an Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Cornell University, a member of
the Computer Systems Laboratory (CSL), and the John and Norma Balen Sesquicentennial Faculty Fellow. My main interests are in computer
architecture and computer systems. Specifically, I work on improving the resource efficiency of large-scale datacenters through QoS-aware scheduling and resource management
techniques. I am also interested in designing efficient server architectures, distributed performance debugging, and cloud security. Before joining Cornell, I earned a
Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, where I worked with Christos Kozyrakis.
I had previously earned an M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford (2011) and a Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering
from the National Technical University of Athens (2009).
I am looking for motivated PhD, MS, and undergrad students to join my group! If you are an MIT student excited about cloud computing, datacenters, and computer architecture and systems in general send me an email with your CV and we can set up a meeting.
