Welcome to my personal web page!
I am a nth year PhD Candidate at UCSB advised by Chandra Krintz and Rich Wolski. I am broadly interested in computer systems and cloud computing. My thesis focus is on understanding and improving the behavior of Big Data analytics systems in resource constraint environments.
Before joining UCSB, I got my BS in Informatics and Telecommunications from the National University of Athens and my MsC in Computer Science from the Athens University of Economics and Business. I worked for more than 4 years as a web developer and search engine marketing specialist at Atnet and spent 1 year doing my compulsory military service in the Greek Army, where I was also involved in software development projects.
