About Me

Computers have been my passion which I acquired at 2nd grade when my parents gave me the best gift ever, a brand new IBM PC with an Intel i486SX processor! It was definitely love on first sight! Many years have passed and everything around them is still really exciting and full of opportunities for those that invest the time to get to know both the ugly and the beautiful side of this magnificent ecosystem.

For anyone that cares, I graduated with a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science from the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Athens, Greece.

I have also received an M.Sc. degree in Microelectronics (Integrated Circuit Design) from the same department, in collaboration with the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and the National Center for Scientific Research (NCSR) "Demokritos", while working as a research assistant to Prof. Elias Manolakos "StochSoCs" project on hardware and software accelerators for stochastic simulations of biochemical reaction networks.

Currently I work at Stromasys as a software and FPGA engineer.

I'm mainly interested and work on projects related to the following broad areas and technologies:

- FPGA design, implementation and verification
  [VHDL / Verilog, AXI4, Xilinx devices with Vivado, Modelsim, UVVM, VUnit]

- embedded systems
  [Xilinx Zynq (ARM), RISC-V, U-Boot, Linux, Busybox]

- virtualization technologies and virtual machines
  [KVM, AMD SVM/NPT, Intel VT-x/EPT]

- parallel programming and architectures
  [MPI, OpenMP, CUDA, Intel Xeon Phi, Parallella]

- web development (backend)
  [PHP7, Symfony Framework]

- deep learning techniques, tools and algorithms
