Name: Nikos Vasilakis

Bio: Long-term, I am interested in lowering system complexity—the primary barrier to the scale of software systems humans can build and operate. For example, what does it take to make developing distributed systems as easy and flexible as ordinary scripting?

I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Pennsylvania. My work falls under distributed systems, programming languages, and systems security. Recently, I’ve worked on general-purpose distributed environments, automated distribution, application compartmentalization, sandboxing of third-party libraries, and distributed storage systems.
