Personal profile

Research Interests

I am the John W. Hancock Professor of Engineering and Professor of Computer Science at Virginia Tech. I do research in system software for large-scale computing amd new computing paradigms. I am the recipient of a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award, the NSF CAREER Award, the DOE CAREER Award, the IBM Faculty Award, the SFI-DEL Investigator Award and Best Paper Awards from some of the premier IEEE and ACM conferences in my area, including SC, PPoPP, and IPDPS. I have mentored 28 PhD students and 16 post-doctoral research fellows over my career. My research has been supported with extensive funding ($38.9m as Principal Investigator and $101.7m as a CoInvestigator) awarded competitively by the NSF, DOE, EPSRC, SFI, NI DfE, Royal Academy of Engineering, Royal Society, the European Commission, IBM, SAP and Intel. I have taught modules in computer organization, computer architecture, parallel programming, operating systems and embedded systems. I am a  Distinguished Member of the ACM for outstanding scientific contributions to computing, Fellow of the Institute of Engineering Technology (FIET), Fellow of the British Computer Society (FBCS), and Senior Member of the IEEE. I earned PhD (2000), MSc (1997) and BEng (1996) degrees in Computer Engineering and Informatics from the University of Patras.
