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.
