I graduated from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of University of Patras in 2011. After I completed my military service, I continued my studies at the University of Southampton where I earned my MSc Degree in Artificial Intelligence. My dissertation focused on the budget optimization problem faced by advertisers participating in repeated sponsored search auctions, seeking to maximize their profit.

I started my PhD in 2014 on “Machine Learning for Big Data / Graphs”, under the supervision of professor M. Vazirgiannis. My current research interests are in the fields of graph similarity, dense subgraph discovery and graph-based information extraction. My research is funded by the Institute for the Management of Information Systems (IMIS), a research institute within the Research and Innovation Center in Information, Communication and Knowledge Technologies "Athena".
Outside of the university, I spend time with my family and friends. I also enjoy playing sports and I am a member of a volleyball team.
