   Mr. Alexandros Kouris received his M.Eng degree in Computer Engineering and Informatics from University of Patras in Greece. He is currently a Ph.D. Candidate with the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Imperial College London, under the supervision of Dr. Christos-Savvas Bouganis in the Intelligent Digital Systems Lab (iDSL).

   His current research focuses on high performance (hardware & software) Machine Learning systems, with particular interest on applications related to intelligent mobile robots and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. From a systems perspective, he is interested on custom hardware implementations on FPGAs, and efficient mappings of algorithms to embedded GPUs.

   Alexandros is funded by EPSRC, within "High Performance Embedded and Distributed Systems (HiPEDS)" CDT programme.
