Welcome to my personal website. My name is Michalis Zervos — or officially Michail Zervos — and I grew up in Papagou, a suburb of Athens, Greece. In Greek my name is written as: Μιχάλης Ζερβός (or Μιχαήλ Ζερβός).
Since October 2013, I’ve been living in Redmond, WA where I work as a Software Developer Engineer in Test in the Windows Azure Active Directory team of Microsoft, where I also interned during the summer of 2012. In the past I’ve worked for a few other companies or as a freelance developer — check my Resume.
Before joining Microsoft, I was in Lausanne, Switzerland where I received my MSc diploma in Computer Science from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and 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.
My research interests lie in the area of Computer Vision, Augmented Reality and Machine Learning and more specifically in people detection, tracking and identification. Apart from that, I like to work on various other projects including game development, robotics, web development, micro-controllers programming, etc — browse the Projects page for more.
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.
