Dimitrios Skarlatos’ research bridges computer architecture and operating systems focusing on performance, security, and scalability. His current work follows two central themes: uncovering security vulnerabilities and building defenses at the boundary between hardware and OS, and re-designing abstractions and interfaces between the two layers to improve performance and scalability.

Dimitrios Skarlatos earned a Ph.D. in computer science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he worked with Josep Torrellas in the i-acoma group. His alma mater is the Technical University of Crete in Greece, where he studied electronic and computer engineering. During his years in Crete, Skarlatos had the chance to work with Dionisios PnevmatikatosApostolos DollasIoannis Papaefstathiou, and Polyvios Pratikakis.
