Personal Info

My name is Antonios Zissimos. I was born in Athens in November 22, 1979. I graduated from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at National Technical University of Athens in 2003. My diploma thesis was titled "Comparing and implementing Extraction and Transformation Algorithms for Data Warehouses". Today, I'm a Ph.D. student at the Computer Systems Laboratory and my advisor is professor Nectarios Koziris. I have teaching assistant experience in undergraduate courses of ECE/NTUA. I am also a reviewer at parallel and distributed conferences and journals of IEEE/ACM. Currently, I'm working as a Research Associate at the Institute of Computer and Communication Systems/Computing Systems Laboratory at NTUA and I am involved in European and National R&D programs in the field of Grid/High Performance Computing, Networking and Storage for IT systems. I am a member of IEEE Computer Society and the Technical Chamber of Greece.

Research Interests
