I am a graduate student at the Department of Computer Engineering and Informatics of the University of Patras and

member of the Research Unit 1 of the Computer Technology Institute (CTI).

My supervisor is Mr. Paul G. Spirakis and the subject of me thesis is "Special Algorithmic Issues on Graphs"

- Design and analysis of algorithms with emphasis on
- approximation algorithms
- randomized algorithms
- online computations and
- parallel algorithms
- Planar graphs
- Random graphs and
- Perfect graphs like permutation, chordl, split and interval graphs.
- Graph Colouring Problem
- Data structures for maintenance future events in a discrete event simulation system
- Optimisation methods
