Dr. Pozidis received a B.S. degree in Computer Engineering and Informatics from the University of Patras, Greece, in 1994, and M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Drexel University, Philadelphia, U.S.A., in 1997 and 1998, respectively.
Between 1998 and 2001 he was with Philips Research, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, where he worked on read channel design for DVD and Blu-ray Disc optical recording formats. In 2001 he joined IBM Research – Zurich, Switzerland, to work on recording technology, signal processing and system-level design for scanning-probe data-storage devices.
He currently manages the Non-volatile Memory Systems group at the Zurich laboratory, which focuses on novel nonvolatile memory concepts and applications of scanning probes to nanoscale metrology.
Dr. Pozidis holds over 50 US and European patents in the areas of solid-state memory technology, probe-based data storage, control systems technology and optical data storage.
In 2009, we was co-recipient of the IEEE Control Systems Technology Award and the IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology Outstanding Paper Award. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE.
