Portrait of Stavros Volos

Stavros Volos



My research interests are in the area of computer architecture with aspects of semiconductor technologies and computer systems. My current research investigates system design for confidential computing.

Prior to joining Microsoft, I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science at the School of Computer and Communication Sciences, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL). There, I architected CloudSuite, a benchmark suite for scale-out cloud services, and worked on processor architectures and memory systems for large-scale datacenters.
