Mema Roussopoulos

Assistant Professor of Computer Science on the Gordon McKay Endowment

NOTE: I have moved overseas and am now at the University of Athens in Greece. You may find my current website here.
I was a faculty member at Harvard University in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences where I headed the Harvard Peer-to-Peer Systems Group. Before joining Harvard, I completed my PhD in Computer Science and was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the MosquitoNet Group at Stanford University. My interests are in the areas of distributed systems, networking, mobile computing, and digital preservation. Before Stanford, I attended the University of Maryland, College Park where I received my B.S. degree in Computer Science. I am a recipient of the CAREER award from the National Science Foundation.
