I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at UC Irvine, in the Distributed Systems Middleware (DSM) Group supporting the Inria@SiliconValley program. I obtained my PhD in Computer Science from the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris, France) on 2017. My PhD research was conducted at Inria, in the MiMove team (ARLES successor) at the center of Paris, under the supervision of Prof. Valérie Issarny and Dr. Nikolaos Georgantas. The title of my PhD thesis is “Enabling Emergent Mobile Systems in the IoT: from Middleware-layer Communication Interoperability to Associated QoS Analysis”. Prior to this, I was a software engineer at Inria, in the ARLES project-team.

I received my Master of Science degree in the Computer Science Department at University of Crete (Greece) on 2012. My Master’s Thesis, was performed in collaboration with the Institute of Computer Science (ICS-FORTH), under the supervision of Prof. Constantine Stephanidis.

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications at University of Peloponnese (Greece) on 2009, under the supervision of Assistant Prof. Nikolaos D. Tselikas.
