 (Nychis rhymes with stitches, Greek: Νύχι - translation)

    In October of 2013, I received my Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University in Electrical & Computer Engineering, co-advised by Peter Steenkiste and Srinivasan Seshan.

I am currently in the progress of building Soroco, a fully-funded early-stage company based in Cambridge, MA (as VP of  Engineering). If you are ambitious and interested, we are hiring (e-mail me for more information).

    As a graduate student, my research focused in areas of dynamic spectrum access where I have contributed to flexible software-defined radio architectures, white space networking, coexistence protocols with primary users, and spectrum management to mitigate interference between secondary users. In collaboration with Microsoft, I helped deploy the first urban white space network (demonstrated directly to the FCC chairman), and helped develop the wireless protocol that shipped on the Xbox One's controllers.
