Short Bio

My name is Kornilios Kourtis. I graduated from the School of Electrical and Computer Enginneering at National Technical University of Athens in 2004. My diploma thesis was titled "Design and Implementation of a Network Block Device in the Linux Operating System". 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.


Currently, I work as a post-doctoral researcher at the Systems Group, ETHZ. I work (among other things) on the Barrelfish OS, and I'm mainly interested in system support for parallel programming.
