NNicolaouNicolas Nicolaou is a Post Doctoral Researcher at the the KIOS Research and Innovation Center of Excellence at the University of Cyprus since April 2014. He is also among the co-founders of Algolysis Ltd (www.algolysis.com), an R&D startup which operates in Cyprus. His main research interests focus on the analysis, design and implementation of practical, robust and secure distributed and parallel algorithms, design and implementation of algorithms for consistent distributed storage systems, ad-hoc mobile and sensor networks, and security evaluation and exploitation of critical computing equipment (including voting technologies). His research was published in top conferences like PODC, DISC, SPAA, and journals like JPDC, IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security in the fields of distributed computing, networks and security. For his work he received funding from the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation (2010-2011) and secured an Intra-European Marie-Curie Fellowship (2014-2016).

Previously he worked as a Marie Curie Fellow at IMDEA Networks Research Institute in Madrid (2014-2016). Before that he held the position of a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Cyprus in Nicosia ( 2011-2013) and he served as a Special Scientist at the Cyprus University of Technology (2013-2014). Prior to that he worked as a Research Assistant in the Dependable Distributed Systems Lab at the University of Connecticut USA, and as a Senior Research Assistant in the VoTeR Lab at the same University.

Nicolas obtained a Ph.D. in 2011 and an M.S. in 2006 from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Connecticut. He obtained his B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Cyprus in 2003. His PhD dissertation entitled “Trade-offs in implementing consistent distributed storage systems” studied the trade-offs between the efficiency and scalability of atomic distributed memory implementations.
