Thanos Stratikopoulos has received the BSc degree in electrical and computer engineering from the Technical University of Crete in 2013. His diploma dissertation focused on the acceleration of graph mining onto reconfigurable hardware. In 2019, he obtained his PhD degree in computer science from the University of Manchester. The subject of his PhD thesis was the hardware acceleration of system software for novel storage technologies. Currently, he is part of the team that has developed TornadoVM (a Java compiler for hardware acceleration). Recently he was awarded a grant by Innovate UK to undertake market exploration for TornadoVM. Currently, he has been appointed by the University of Manchester as Impact Champion to facilitate researchers of the university towards productizing their research assets. Additionally, he is involved in the EU Horizon 2020 ELEGANT project to make TornadoVM the norm for developing applications that can be transparently accelerated on both IoT and Cloud execution environments.
