Christos Strydis obtained his Ph.D. degree in Computer Engineering from the Delft University of Technology in 2011 (Title: “Universal Processor Architecture for Biomedical Implants - The SiMS Project”, Promotor: Prof. Georgi N. Gaydadjiev). Christos has originally studied Electronics & Computer Engineering at the Technical University of Crete, Greece, and in 2003 received his bachelor's diploma (honors). In 2005 he obtained his M.Sc. degree (honors) in Computer Engineering from the Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, with a minor in Biomedical Engineering. His interests revolve around the topics of computer architecture, dependable systems, low-power embedded systems, high-performance neuroscience applications and biomedical microelectronic implants. Christos has peer-reviewed for as well as published manuscripts in well-known international conferences and journals.


Dr. Strydis has acted as technical-program-committee member as well as in other capacities for a number of international conferences. He has published and reviewed for a large number of peer-reviewed conferences and journals. He has also delivered invited talks in various venues. Over the years, Christos has supervised multiple BSc, MSc and PhD students. Aside for research, Christos currently teaches a number of bachelor- and master-level courses in the joint Nanobiology program of the Erasmus Medical Center and the Delft University of Technology. Lastly, he is a chief engineer with Neurasmus BV, a Neuroscience Dept. spin-off.
