Assoc. Prof. Michael Psarakis

He is Associate Professor specializing in "Architecture of Embedded Systems with an emphasis on Hardware" at the Department of Informatics of the University of Piraeus, where he directs the Laboratory of Embedded Computing Systems. He holds a degree in Computer Engineering from the Department of Computer Engineering and Informatics of the University of Patras and a PhD from the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. His research interests include: design, test, and verification of embedded systems, microprocessors, and systems-on-a-chip (SoC), design of fault-tolerant embedded systems, methodologies to analyze and avoid radiation effects in FPGA devices, and design accelerators using FPGA technology . He has worked in the private sector as an R&D engineer for six years, where he participated in the development of embedded computing systems for telecommunications and military applications while also working on a large number of European Research and Development Programs. At the University of Piraeus, during the last five years, he has directed ten (10) research projects funded by National Bodies, the European Union, private companies and international Organizations. He has published more than 70 papers in prestigious journals and international conference proceedings. He has been a member of the organizing committee and the program committee of several international conferences (IEEE/ACM Design Automation and Test in Europe (DATE) – Test, Reliability and Robustness Track, IEEE On-Line Testing Symposium (IOLTS), IEEE International Symposium on Defect and Fault Tolerance in VLSI and Nanotechnology Systems (DFT), IEEE Computer Society Annual Symposium on VLSI (ISVLSI), International Symposium on Applied Reconfigurable Computing (ARC), IEEE European Test Symposium (ETS)). He has served as Program Chair at the IEEE DFT 2019 and IEEE DFT 2020 conferences. He is a member of IEEE, IEEE Computer Society and ACM.
