Welcome to my personal web page!
I am a 5th year PhD Candidate at UCSB and proud member of the Research on Adaptive Computing Environments lab (aka RACE lab) exploring the world of cloud computing and big data analytic systems! I am being advised by Professor Chandra Krintz and Professor Rich Wolski.
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.
