Christina Delimitrou is an Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Cornell University. She is a member of the Computer Systems Laboratory, where she works on improving the design and management of large-scale datacenters. In 2015-2016 she was a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer at Stanford University. Christina graduated from Stanford with a PhD in Electrical Engineering in 2015.

As part of her PhD work, she built practical systems for cluster management and scheduling in warehouse-scale computers. She is the recipient of a Facebook Research Fellowship, a Stanford Graduate Fellowship, two ASPLOS best paper runner-up awards, an IISWC 2012 best paper nomination, and a 2014 IEEE Micro Top Picks. She has also earned an MS from Stanford (2011) and a diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (2009).

Research Interests

Christina's primary interests are in designing resource-efficient datacenters and improving the way their resources are managed. She is also interested in hardware acceleration, applied data mining, performance monitoring and debugging, cloud security, and architecture and distributed systems broadly.
