Joseph is a software architect working for Intel.

He was born in Athens, Greece but he left in 1996 and lived for many years in United Kingdom where he studied and worked in the telecoms and enterprise industry. In 2008 he got hired by Intel, his current employer where he focused on packet processing performance with multicore systems and other software optimizations including VXLAN offloads in the Linux kernel for network interfaces. In 2011 he moved to Portland, Oregon and focused on Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). He played a key role in shaping Intel's Open Networking Platform and he also got involved in OPNFV, both of which are Reference Architectures that integrate open source components including OpenStack. Joseph has a strong interest on data plane performance and how orchestration is affecting it.

He is married with two kids, Nicolas and Kallie, who happily take most of his time when he is not working on networking optimizations or writing patents or practicing Shotokan karate.
