Nikolaos Alachiotis completed his undergraduate studies at the ECE department of the Technical University of Crete (Greece) and his Ph.D. at the Informatics department of the Technische Universität München (Germany) in 2008 and 2012, respectively. His research interests lie in the fields of computer architecture, parallel computing, reconfigurable computing, and Bioinformatics. He joined the Computer Architecture Lab at Carnegie Mellon University as a post-doctoral researcher in 2014, where he led the design of a generic acceleration architecture for 3D-stacked DRAMs (DARPA-funded PERFECT project). He joined the Computer Architecture and VLSI Systems Laboratory at FORTH-ICS in September 2016, where he worked on architecture design and hardware development for specialized acceleration in disaggregated datacenters (EU-funded dReDBox project). In June 2019, he joined the Telecommunications Systems Research Institute to work on automated generation of hardware-accelerated software for deployment on the cloud (EU-funded EDRA project). He is with the CAES group at UT since June 2020.
