Short Bio:

Georgios Zervakis received the Diploma and Ph.D. degrees from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece, in 2012 and 2018, respectively. He is currently a research assistant and group leader at the Chair for Embedded Systems (CES), at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Before joining KIT, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at Microprocessors Laboratory and Digital Systems Lab (Microlab), ECE, NTUA. In addition, he has worked as a research associate at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (UOA), and as a principal investigator at the Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (ICCS), Greece. As a member of ICCS, he worked in several European projects including among others the AEGLE, FABSPACE 2.0, and EXA2PRO.
