I am an Associate Professor and the Director of the Computer Systems and Communications Laboratory at Athens University of Economics and Business. My primary research interests are in the areas of distributed and real-time systems, human-centered systems, participatory sensing systems, peer-to-peer systems, crowdsourcing, mobility, resource management and fault-tolerance.

Prior to coming to AUEB I was an Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Riverside and a Research Scientist at Hewlett-Packard Labs in Palo Alto, CA.

I have been awarded an ERC Starting Independent Researcher Grant, a Marie Curie Fellowship, three best paper awards at the 11th ACM International Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems (DEBS 2017), 24th IEEE International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS 2009) and the 9th IEEE Annual International Symposium on Applications and the Internet (SAINT 2008), a Best Technical Paper Award at ACM PETRA 2018, a Best Student Paper Award at the 11th IEEE/IPSJ International Symposium on Applications and the Internet (SAINT 2011), an IBM Best Student Paper Award runner up at MDM 2014, a UC Regents Fellowship Award, UC Academic Senate Research Awards and a research award from HP Labs.
