I was born in Athens, Attiki on 4rth March 1984. After graduating from lyceum, I moved to Chania, Island of Crete, where I studied at the Electronic and Computer Engineering department, Technical University of Crete. I received my diploma in 2008with a score of 7.5/10. In May 2008, I joined the greek army and in July of the same year I became a corporal. In 2009 I continued my studies at the Production Engineering and Management department of the same university to complete a master’s course in Management and Business Administration. I received my M.Sc. in 2011 with a score 9.3/10. Currently, I’m a PhD student at the same department, working on detection and semantic analysis of object and events through visual cues.
Since 2010 I have been working as a research associate for the Decision Support Laboratory, Technical University of Crete, involved in Interreg research projects Poseidon and E-Park. In the framework of Poseidon project, I was responsible for developing intelligent computer vision algorithms capable to detect in real time maritime targets using offshore cameras. In the framework of E-Park project I was working as a software developer.
Since 2014 I have been working as a research associate for the Institute of Communication and Computer Systems, National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). Concretely, I’m working as a research associate for the FP7 project eVACUATE. In the framework of this project, I’m responsible for capturing thermal and multispectral visual data from crowded venues, as well as developing computer vision algorithms applicable to evacuate systems.
I’m mostly involved and interested in computer vision, both for visual spectrum RGB and hyperspectral data, and in machine learning / pattern recognition and probabilistic programming. However, my studies and work experience cover a broader range of activities, including software and web development.
