About me

I am Assistant Professor at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. I am the director of the Embedded Systems Software Lab, which works on run-time resource management of modern and heterogeneous embedded many-core architectures, and I am also affiliated with the Center for Embedded Systems (CES). I received my Ph.D. in the Microprocessors and Digital Systems Laboratory of National Technical University of Athens under the guidance of Prof. Dimitrios Soudris. I am currently working in the area of many-core embedded systems. In particular, my research interests lie in the area of constrained application mapping for many-core systems, design and exploration of heterogeneous platforms, resource contention minimization and power-aware design of embedded systems.
