Michalis Zervos

Michalis ZervosWelcome to my personal website. My name is Michalis Zervos and I grew up in Papagou, a suburb of Athens, Greece.  In Greek my name is written as: Μιχάλης Ζερβός.

Since October 2013, I’ve been living in Redmond, WA where I work as a Software Engineer for the Service Resilience Team at Microsoft. Our team builds a state-of-the-art fault injection system and tools for improving the resilience of Microsoft’s cloud services. In the past, I worked mainly as a freelance developer — check my Resume.

I received my MSc diploma in Computer Science from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne where I also worked as a research assistant at the Computer Vision Lab. Prior to that, I did my undergraduate studies at the Department of Informatics & Telecommunications of University of Athens.

Over the years, I have worked on a variety of projects such as micro-processor programming, web apps, game development and distributed applications — browse the Projects page for more information. A long time ago, I used to do research in Computer Vision and more specifically in people detection, tracking and identification.

On my free time, I really enjoy skiing, watching Formula 1 and travelling around the world.

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.
