General Information

I am a Ph.D. candidate at Stanford University having the pleasure of being advised by Moses Charikar. I hold a MSc in Statistics (Stanford University) and an Engineering Diploma in Electical and Computer Engineering (National Technical University of Athens) where I was advised by Dimitris Fotakis. My interests lie in Algorithms and Probability. I enjoy applying methods from Theoretical Computer Science to the analysis of large datasets and problems in Machine Learning.

I occasionaly also organize a reading group on Algorithms, Geometry and Learning.
