Short Bio

I received my B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Informatics of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, in 2005, 2007 and 2011, respectively. I have worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at ITI-CERTH, in the EC-funded projects I-SEARCH (FP7/ICT-STREP) and CUBRIK (FP7/ICT-IP) from June 2011 to December 2013. In 2014, I was awarded an excellence grant for postdoctoral researchers in «Multimedia Big Data and Cloud Computing» from the Aristotle University. Also, in 2015 I was awarded an excellence grant for new researchers from UCY. Currently, I am a postdoctoral research fellow with the Department of Informatics of Aristotle University. My main research interests include Multimedia Information Retrieval, Social Media Mining, and Big Data Platforms.
