I defended my thesis, "Real-Time Telemetry Systems for Multidimensional Streaming Data: A Case Study on Video Viewership Analytics", in October 2021 and will soon be joining Facebook NYC as a Research Scientist.

I received my PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. During my PhD, I was very fortunate to have a great team supporting me. I was advised by Vyas Sekar and also collaborated very closely with Justine Sherry. Prior to CMU, I received my engineering diploma from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece (2015).

My research interests lie in the intersection of networks and systems and my high-level goal is to enhance system reliability through performance predictability and insightful analytics. My thesis is on the design and development of scalable, real-time telemetry systems for approximate, multidimensional analytics, with a special focus on analytics for video streaming platforms. Prior, I also worked on building mechanisms for performance prediction in NFV.








Random Things

Reading: A selection of books I read in 2020 and would recommend

Cooking: I'm very much into Italian cuisine and Andrea is my guru
Languages: I'm a big language nerd and I take foreign language/culture classes for fun. If you're like me, then you might find the resources of CMU's department of modern languages really interesting!
Volunteering: When time permits, I volunteer at Zaatar, an Athens-based NGO that provides support to single refugee women and unaccompanied refugee minors. My help is limited to translating documents to/from Greek. Consider supporting their cause, their work is impressive.
