CV

Emmanouel (Manos) Varvarigos was born in Athens, Greece, in 1965. He received a Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens in 1988, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, in 1990 and 1992, respectively.

In 1990 he was a researcher at Bell Communications Research, Morristown, NJ. From 1992 to 1998 he was an Assistant and later an Associate Professor at the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of California, Santa Barbara. In 1998-1999 he was an Associate Professor at the Electrical Engineering department at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. In 1999 he became a Professor at the department of Computer Engineering and Informatics at the University of Patras, where he also served as director of the Hardware and Computer Architecture Division for three terms. He founded and directed from 2000 to 2015 the Communication Networks Lab at the University of Patras. He is also the Director of the Greek School Network and Network Technologies Sector at the Computer Technology Institute (CTI), which through its involvement in pioneering research and development projects, has a major role in the development of network technologies and telematic services in Greece, and is developing and operating the Greek School Network, the largest public Network in Greece. In 2015 he became a Professor at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens, where he is also the director of the High Speed Communication Networks Laboratory.

Dr. Varvarigos has received an NSF research initiation award and the 1st Prize in the national competition in Mathematics. He has served in the organizing and program committees of over 100 international conferences, primarily in the networking area, and in national committees. He has participated in more than 15 EU-funded research projects (in 3 of them as coordinator) in the areas of optical networking, data centers, grid and cloud computing, and smart energy grids, in 7 US research projects, and in more than 20 national projects. He has over 300 publications in international journals and conferences.

His research activities are in the areas of protocols and algorithms for high-speed networks, all-optical networking, high-performance switch architectures, grid /cloud/parallel/distributed computing, interconnection networks, VLSI layout design, performance evaluation, and ad-hoc networks.
