I completed my undergraduate studies and M.Sc. in the Computer Engineering and Informatics Department of University of Patras. My research advisor for both my diploma and master thesis was Christos Makris. In my diploma thesis, I explored Data Mining techniques for Recommender Systems and particularly on the problem of predicting web page accesses in a web site by modeling user navigation history and web page content with weighted suffix trees. Part of my diploma thesis entitled "Data Mining techniques and its applications to recommendation systems" was published at DKE journal under the title "A web page usage prediction scheme using sequence indexing and clustering techniques".

In the first year of my M.Sc., I studied the problem of self-healing distributed data structures under repeated attacks or component failures under the supervision of Associate Professor Ioannis Chatzigiannakis. In parallel, I also worked with Professor Peter Triantafillou on the top-k event-matching problem in publish/subscribe systems. In my M.Sc. thesis, I studied Compact Representations of the Web Structure.

In Fall 2010, I was enrolled at the Ph.D. program at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of NYU Tandon School of Engineering. During my Ph.D. I worked with Professor Torsten Suel. My research is focused on Web Algorithmics for large scale systems. For more information, see my research interests and publications.

I had two great summer interships at Google Search Team in Mountain View (2013, 2014). I worked on the performance of the core search backend serving system under the supervision of Marcus Fontoura and Beckett Madden-Woods.
