Portrait of Stavros Volos

Stavros Volos



I am a researcher in the Systems Research Group at Microsoft Research. My research interests are in the area of computer architecture with aspects of semiconductor technologies and computer systems. My current research investigates the implications of emerging memory technologies on computer system design for large-scale datacenters.

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) under the supervision of Babak Falsafi. There, I co-architected CloudSuite, a benchmark suite for scale-out cloud services, and worked on processor architectures and memory systems for large-scale datacenters.
