Themis Melissaris

PhD Candidate, Princeton Computer Science

pic I am a final-year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science department at Princeton. I am advised by Prof. Margaret Martonosi and Prof. Kelly Shaw. My goal is to build practical testing tools for system correctness. My research interests span different areas of Systems. During my internships at VMware (summer 2018), Samsung Research America (summer 2016) and Cisco (summer 2015), I worked on Systems applications for the Internet of Things.

Before coming to Princeton, I spent six months as a visiting scholar at UT Dallas, working with Prof. Yiorgos Makris. I received my Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from NTUA, Greece, where I was advised by Prof. Iraklis Anagnostopoulos and Prof. Dimitrios Soudris.

I am on the job market!
