Προσωπικό Προφίλ

Ο Δρ. Χρυσόστομος Νικόπουλος είναι Αναπληρωτής Καθηγητής στο τμήμα ΗΜΜΥ του Πανεπιστημίου Κύπρου. Είναι κάτοχος διπλώματος Ηλεκτρολόγου Μηχανικού (2003) από το Pennsylvania State University, USA, και Διδακτορικού διπλώματος Ηλεκτρολόγου Μηχανικού (με ειδίκευση στην Μηχανική Υπολογιστών, 2007) από το ίδιο πανεπιστήμιο. Η διδακτορική διατριβή του Δρ. Νικόπουλου (με τίτλο "Αρχιτεκτονικές Δικτύων-σε-Κύκλωμα: Μία Ολιστική Σχεδιαστική Εξερεύνηση", Network-on-Chip Architectures: A Holistic Design Exploration) κέρδισε το βραβείο καλύτερης διδακτορικής διατριβής 2008-09 στην περιοχή "Νέες Κατευθύνσεις Σχεδιασμού Συστημάτων" από την Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση Σχεδιασμού και Αυτοματοποίησης (European Design and Automation Association). Την περίοδο 2007-08, ο Δρ. Νικόπουλος εργάστηκε σαν μεταδιδακτορικός ερευνητής στο Εργαστήριο Αρχιτεκτονικής Επεξεργαστών του Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) στην Ελβετία. Αυτή τη στιγμή διευθύνει το Εργαστήριο Αρχιτεκτονικής Πολυπύρηνων Υπολογιστών (multicore Computer Architecture Laboratory, multiCAL) στο τμήμα ΗΜΜΥ του Πανεπιστημίου Κύπρου. Τα ερευνητικά του ενδιαφέροντα είναι στις ακόλουθες περιοχές: αρχιτεκτονική υπολογιστών, αρχιτεκτονικές διασύνδεσης πάνω σε μικροκυκλώματα (Networks-on-Chip), σχεδιασμός μικροεπεξεργαστών και υπολογιστικών συστημάτων, και σχεδιασμός ψηφιακών συστημάτων.

Profile Information

Chrysostomos Nicopoulos is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Cyprus. Chrysostomos received the B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering (specializing in Computer Engineering) from the Pennsylvania State University, USA, in 2003 and 2007, respectively. As a member of the Microsystems Design Laboratory at Penn State, Chrysostomos was actively involved in the research of packet-based Networks-on-Chip (NoC) and their implementation in multicore computer architectures. His Ph.D. dissertation, titled: "Network-on-Chip Architectures: A Holistic Design Exploration," received the 2008 Outstanding Dissertation Award in the area of "New directions in logic and system design" by the European Design and Automation Association (EDAA). From 2007 to 2008, he worked as a post-doctoral research associate in the Processor Architecture Laboratory at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. He currently leads the multicore Computer Architecture Laboratory (multiCAL) at the University of Cyprus. His research interests lie in the areas of: computer architecture, Networks-on-Chip (NoC), microprocessor and computer system design, and digital system design.
