Hi, welcome to my webpage!
I have graduated, and I am currently a member of the Microprocessor and Programming Research Lab at Intel Co. in Santa Clara, CA, where I work on binary translation.
Before that I was a PhD student at the Computer Architecture Lab (Archlab)
at UC Santa Barbara.
My area of research is energy efficiency in large-scale systems,
which I pursue under the supervision of my advisor Prof. Fred Chong.
In particular, I investigate hardware and software mechanisms for
energy-efficiency in datacenters. On the hardware side I have looked into
low-power states for servers. On the software side I have developed
distributed cluster algorithms for energy-efficient operation.
I also investigate energy-efficiency
on enterprise servers. I have developed dynamic power management techniques
for both the CPU and the memory.
Before joining the graduate program at UCSB, I earned a 5-year degree in Electrical and Computer
Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). The final year of my studies
I actually did at the Technical University of Munich, participating at the european exchange program

For a detailed list of my research and work experiences, please look at my CV.
My exchange year in Germany motivated me to learn new languages.
On my arrival, the only foreign language I spoke was English; by the time
of my departure, I had picked up German, Spanish and Portuguese. I am currently
fluent in English, German and Spanish, besides my native language, Greek.
I studied classical music for 14 years (classical piano and theory), while
I am currently involved with Argentine tango. I actually managed
to combine my passion for Argentine tango with the one for Computer Science
when I took the Pattern Classification class at UCSB. You can see
the outcome of this in this report: class-report.
I am also into swimming and reading literature.
In 2009 I was the president of our local group of Women in CS.
I really enjoyed volunteering at the Olympic Games in Greece in 2004, and the
World Cup in Germany in 2006.
