Emmanouil Koukoumidis Systems Builder & Data Junkie


Building systems is my job and my hobby. Playing with data is my passion.
I am particularly interested in new tech, novel ideas and out-of-the-box solutions that solve core problems.

I am currently a Senior Software Development Engineer in Microsoft (Redmond, WA) working on big data processing platforms. Before joining Microsoft, I completed my PhD in Princeton University focusing on mobile-cloud systems co-design and the analysis of data crowdsourced by such systems. I have worked as a researcher at MIT, Microsoft Research, and Singapore's SMART Center. I have also worked as a software development engineer (intern) at Google, CERN and ICCS (Athens, Greece).

You can find more information about my work below. I also maintain a blogpost.

Selected Press:

Twenty years from now
you will be more dissappointed
by the things that you didn't do
than by the ones you did.
So throw off the bowlines.
sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain
If there is no wind, row.
Polish proverb

Imagination is more important than knowledge...
Albert Einstein
