I lead the Distributed and Real-Time Systems group at Athens University of Economics and Business. My primary research interests are in the areas of distributed systems, participatory sensing systems, mobile systems, peer-to-peer, real-time, fault tolerance, scalability and resource management.

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 received my PhD from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2000. I hold an M.S. and a B.S. from the University of Crete, Greece.

My research has been supported by an ERC Starting Independent Researcher Grant, the European Union, joint EU/Greek "Aristeia" grant, a joint EU/Greek "Thalis" grant, NSF and gifts from SUN and Nokia.

I have been awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship, two best paper awards at the 24th IEEE IPDPS 2009 conference, the 9th IEEE SAINT 2008, a Best Student Paper Award at the 11th IEEE/IPSJ SAINT 2011 conference, a UC Regents Fellowship Award, UC Academic Senate Research Awards and a research award from HP Labs.

Here is my short bio and CV
