I am Principal Software Engineer at Microsoft and member of Viva Engage team.

I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of California, Santa Barbara where I was member of the Systems, Algorithms, Networking and Data Lab (SAND Lab). Before that, I got my M.Sc. and B.Sc. degrees from the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece.
