Dr. Georgios D. Dimou has 20+ years of experience in hardware design with expertise spanning from architecture to implementation. On the architecture side, his research interests include the fields of digital signal processing, and in more recent years AI and Neuromorphic computing. On the implementation side, he has led several commercial and research projects with particular emphasis on asynchronous circuit design and low-power design techniques.

Prior to joining Galois, Georgios was part of Reduced Energy Microsystems where he worked on low-power machine vision. Prior to that, he was part of Intel, initially as part of the Datacenter group and later at Intel Labs. The most notable work there includes the Loihi neuromorphic processor architecture and implementation. Earlier Georgios spent time doing research on asynchronous circuits and EDA tools, which included co-founding TimeLess Design Automation in order to bring the technology to market. TimeLess design automation was acquired in 2010 by Fulcrum and later Intel in 2011. Before that he spent 8 years in the field of telecommunications at TrellisWare Technologies, creating custom industry-leading hardware implementations for advanced Forward Error Correcting codes and digital signal processing for both commercial and defence applications.

Dr. Dimou holds a BS in Electronic and Computer Engineering from the Technical University of Crete in Greece, and MS and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Southern California.
