My name in Greek: Θοδωρής Γεωργίου (Thodoris Georgiou)
Computer Science Department (UCSB)
Welcome to my personal website!
My research areas include Social Networks, Data Mining and Machine Learning.
I have a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science from University of Athens, Greece and currently pursue a doctorate degree at UCSB. For the past couple years I was working part-time as a Data Scientist at Twitter, where I helped build Twitter's new "Trending Events" feature.
I'm the recipient of SIGMOD's Undergraduate Poster Competition award (2010) and I have also been awarded as an Outstanding Teaching Assistant at UCSB, twice (2011 and 2012). I currently live with my lovely wife in the beautiful city of Santa Barbara. My hobbies include geeky stuff, traveling, coding, and authoring research papers!
Above you can see a photo from my summer vacation at Ios island (Greece, 2010). It's common for CS academics to include such photos on their web pages to show everyone that they also have a life... and to hide the fact that we spend the rest 360 days of the year doing research and writing code!
Here's also a map of all the places I have been to! I'm really looking forward to adding new tags! :-)
To create this web site I used:
- The all-in-one w3c validator, Unicorn
- A social media icon collection from icondock.com
- The GIMP image manipulation program
- A visitor counter from pathfinder.gr
- My expert knowledge of CSS/HTML/PHP! :-)
