Theocharis (Theo) Theocharides is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, at the University of Cyprus. Theocharis received his Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Penn State University, working in the areas of low-power computer architectures and reliable system design. Theocharis was honored with the Robert M. Owens Memorial Scholarship in May 2005. He has been with the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at the University of Cyprus since 2005, where he directs the Embedded and Application-Specific Systems-on-Chip Laboratory. His current research focuses on the development of low-power and reliable on-chip application-specific architectures, low-power VLSI design, embedded systems design and exploration of energy-reliability trade-offs for Systems on Chip and Embedded Systems. His focus lies on acceleration of computer vision, bioinformatics and artificial intelligence algorithms in hardware, and in utilizing reconfigurable hardware towards self-aware, evolvable computing systems. His research interests span accross the emerging areas of evolvable hardware design, domain specific computing, and perceptual computing. He serves on several organizing and technical program committees of various conferences, is a Senior Member of the IEEE, a member of the ACM, and an Associate Editor for IEEE Consumer Electronics magazine. He also serves on the Editorial Boards of IEEE Design & Test magazine, and ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems.
