BiographyKonstantinos Psounis is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and of Computer Science at the University of Southern California. Prior to this he was an Assistant Professor and then an Associate Professor at the same university. He graduated first in his class from the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of National Technical University of Athens, Greece, and completed an M.S. and a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, California, as a Stanford graduate fellow.
Konstantinos works on modeling, performance analysis, algorithm design, and system implementation for efficient and privacy-preserving networked, distributed systems, including the Internet and the web, data centers and cloud systems, WiFi/cellular and spectrum sharing systems, sensor and IoT systems, mobile ad hoc and delay tolerant networks, peer to peer systems, and autonomous vehicles robotics and drones systems. He is the author of more than 100 research papers on these topics which have received more than 10000 citations. He has received faculty awards and funding from numerous governmental agencies and industry leaders. He is an IEEE Fellow and an ACM Distinguished Member.
Research SummaryMy research interests lie in the area of Networked Distributed Systems which fascinates me for its breadth, spanning from hands-on system-design all the way to advanced mathematical analysis, and for the direct impact that it has to people’s lives, exemplified by the profound changes that the Internet, the World Wide Web, and the cellular network have brought to our lives in the recent past, the profound changes that data centers and the cloud recently brought to the way companies operate and offer services to us, and the profound changes that autonomus systems involving cars robots and drones will bring pretty soon.
More specifically, I work on modeling, performance analysis, algorithm design, and system implementation for efficient and privacy-preserving networked, distributed systems, including the Internet and the web, data centers and cloud systems, WiFi/cellular and spectrum sharing systems, sensor and IoT systems, mobile ad hoc and delay tolerant networks, peer to peer systems, and autonomous vehicles robotics and drones systems.
