Ilias is an electronic and electrical PhD candidate at the University of Southampton collaborating with Arm through the Industrial Cooperative Awards in Science & Technology (iCASE) programme. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the university of Patras in Greece, and a Master’s degree in embedded software systems from the University of Aalborg in Denmark. His research interests lie in embedded systems, both in hardware and in software as he has been researching in the past the areas of real-time scheduling, software driven hardware verification, hardware fault tolerance and fault semantics. His work experience includes working as a embedded engineering intern at Seebyte Ltd, an underwater robotics company based in Edinburgh, Scotland. His work there revolved around developing a state-of-the-art video mosaicing technique used in autonomous underwater vehicles for mapping purposes, and performing various optimisations to achieve real-time functionality for remote operated vehicles. Currently, he is researching power-efficiency optimizations in heterogeneous processors.
