Who am I
My name is Iraklis Psaroudakis and I’m also known as “kingherc” on the internet. It’s a funny nickname I picked on as a kid for video games, and haven’t changed it since! This is my personal website. It serves as my blog and a way to express myself. I hail from Greece. If you would like to know my formal background in a nutshell, here it follows.
Iraklis Psaroudakis is working remotely from Greece as a Principal Software Engineer at Elastic, focusing on the distributed scalability of Elasticsearch. Previously, he was a Principal Member of Technical Staff at Oracle Labs in Zürich, Switzerland, concentrating on parallel and distributed programming, and graph-based analytical & machine learning workloads, especially in financial crime & compliance applications. Prior to Oracle, he completed his Ph.D. at the DIAS lab of EPFL in Lausanne, focusing on scaling up highly concurrent analytical database workloads on multi-socket multi-core servers through (a) sharing data and work across concurrent queries, and (b) adaptive NUMA-aware data placement and task scheduling. During his Ph.D., he cooperated with the SAP HANA database team. Before his Ph.D., he completed his studies in Electrical & Computer Engineering at NTUA in Athens.
