Vito Kortbeek

PhD Student at the Embedded and Networked Systems Group

Delft University of Technology


I am a 4th year PhD Student at the Embedded and Networked Systems group at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft). My supervisors are Dr. Przemysław Pawełczak and Prof. dr. Koen Langendoen.

My research focuses on intermittent computing support, and this mainly involves ensuring that low-power battery-less embedded systems–that work on harvested energy–continue where they left off after a total power failure. I am affiliated with the ZERO program, whose focus is to reduce the energy consumed by IoT devices drastically.
