Name: Nikos Vasilakis
Bio: Long-term, I am interested in lowering system complexity—the primary barrier to the scale of software systems humans can build and operate. For example, what does it take to make developing distributed systems as easy and flexible as ordinary scripting?
I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at MIT CSAIL, working with Martin Rinard. I work on distributed systems, programming languages, and systems security—with recent work focusing on general-purpose distributed environments, application compartmentalization, sandboxing of third-party libraries, and distributed storage systems. I received a Ph.D. in Computer and Information Sciences from the University of Pennsylvania and a B.Sc./M.Eng. in Computer Engineering and Informatics from the University of Patras, Greece.
