Short Bio

My name is Kornilios Kourtis. I graduated from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at National Technical University of Athens in 2004. In April 2010, I successfully defended my PhD thesis (english-only version) entitled "Data compression techniques for performance improvement of memory-intensive applications on shared memory architectures", under the supervision of prof. Nectarios Koziris.


I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Systems Group, ETHZ with prof. Timothy Roscoe. I work (among other things) on the Barrelfish OS, and I'm broadly interested in system support for modern and future hardware. In Barrelfish, we aim to address the challenges of current and future multicore architectures (scalability, heterogeneity, and hardware complexity) by revisiting OS design. Recently, my work is focused on building a network stack that can deal with the complexities of modern NICs.
