About me...


I am a research associate in Insititute of Informatics and Telecommunications (IIT) of NCSR "Demokritos", since October 2008, where I am involved in national and international projects. Before, I was a research engineer at Xerox Research Centre Europe, in Grenoble, France, and member of the Textual and Visual Pattern Analysis (TVPA) group.

I hold a BSc in Computer Science from Athens University of Economics and Business, an MSc in Machine Learning and Data Mining from the University of Bristol and a PhD in Machine Learning from Pierre and Marie Curie University (Paris 6). During my PhD, I worked under the supervision of Jean-Michel Renders from Xerox Research Centre Europe, and Massih-Reza Amini and Patrick Gallinari from the Computer Science Laboratory (LIP6) of Pierre and Marie Curie University and I carried out research in the area of Machine Learning and more precisely in semi-supervised and active learning for text classification tasks.

I am a member of EETN (Hellenic Artificial Intelligence Society).

My research interests include Machine Learning, Information Retrieval, Knowledge Engineering.
