About Me

I am currently a PhD student in the Computer Science program at Northeastern University’s College of Computer and Information Science, advised by Professor Seth Cooper. In 2015, I received my degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece. My main research interests include human-computer interaction, games, and crowdsourcing.

Outside of research, I am a big tennis fan and you can easily spot me in the crowd by my headphones. I love traveling and carrying my camera around.

COSMOS - Cultivate resilient smart Objects for Sustainable city applicatiOnS

In a world of multi-stakeholder information and assets provision on top of millions of real-time interacting and communicating things, COSMOS aims at enhancing the sustainability of smart city applications by allowing IoT based systems to reach their full potential. COSMOS will enable things to evolve and act in a more autonomous way, becoming more reliable and smarter. Contributed to the project as part of my undergraduate thesis titled "Study, Extraction and Utilization of Relational Models among Virtual Entities in the Social Internet of Things", while at NTUA.
