About

I am a 2nd year Ph.D. student at the Computer Science Department of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, working with Professor Indy Gupta as a member of the Distributed Protocols Research Group (DPRG).
Before starting my Ph.D., I studied Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Computer Science at the University of Thessaly, Greece.
My main research interests lie in the areas of Distributed Systems, Edge Computing, Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, and Software Engineering. Currently, I am working on algorithms for node coordination in an IoT/Edge setting, as well as on reliability in a Cloud setting. You can find my CV here.
