Dr. Ir. Christos Strydis (C)

  • Position: PhD, Associate Professor, Erasmus Medical Center & Delft University of Technology
  • Lab Head in:


Christos Strydis holds a joint associate-professor with the Neuroscience department of the Erasmus Medical Center and with the Quantum & Computer Engineering department of Delft University of Technology. He is also a chief engineer with Neurasmus BV, the Netherlands. He is the founder and head of the Neurocomputing Laboratory ( and a senior member of the IEEE. Dr. Strydis studied Electronics & Computer Engineering at the Technical University of Crete, Greece, and in 2003 received his bachelor's diploma (magna cum laude). In 2005, he obtained his M.Sc. degree (magna cum laude) in Computer Engineering from the Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, with a minor in Biomedical Engineering. In 2011, he obtained his Ph.D. degree in Computer Engineering from the Delft University of Technology and funding by the ICT Delft Research Centre (DRC-ICT) and Google Inc. Christos has acted as technical-program-committee member in various international conferences. He has also peer-reviewed for as well as published manuscripts in well-known international conferences and journals, and delivered invited talks in various venues. He has been awarded a number of national- and EU-level research projects. Christos has supervised multiple BSc, MSc and PhD students, and teaches several bachelor- and master-level courses. His current research interests span the fields of brain simulations, high-performance computing, low-power embedded (in particular, implantable) systems and functional ultrasound imaging.
