My name is Konstantinos (Kostis) Nikas and I am a senior researcher at the Computing Systems Laboratory (CSLab) of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). I am currently working together with Prof. Nectarios Koziris, Assistant Prof. Georgios Goumas and Dr. Vasileios Karakostas.
Before joining CSLab, I was a graduate student in the Advanced Processor Technologies Research Group (APT) at the University of Manchester, where I was working under the supervision of Dr. Jim Garside and Prof. Ian Watson. My PhD thesis focused on cache partitioning techniques to improve the performance of chip multiprocessor systems.
