My main research interests lie in the areas of computational learning theory, probabilistic analysis of algorithms and algorithmic game theory.
Before joining Columbia University, I was an intern for "Athena" Research & Innovation Center in Athens, Greece. I received a Bachelor & M.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from one of Greece's "Grand Schools", in ECE Department of National Technical University of Athens, where I was advised by Prof. Dimitris Fotakis.
