I am currently working as a software engineer for Intel Corporation at Santa Clara, California.

Previously, I was working as a research scientist at Intel labs Barcelona and I was part of the ARCO group.

I finished my PhD at the University of Edinburgh. My supervisor was Dr. Mahesh K. Marina, and I was part of the Wireless & Mobile networking (WiMo) research group. My PhD thesis focuses on the design of interference-aware adaptive spectrum management mechanisms for wireless networks using unlicensed frequency bands.

Before starting my PhD at the University of Edinburgh, I obtained my MSc in 2006 in Computer Science also at the University of Edinburgh under the supervision of Dr. Stratis Viglas and a BSc in Computer Science in 2004 from the University of Crete, Greece.


Research Interests

Currently, my work focuses on developing a simulation methodology to support architecture exploration and performance validation.

Before joining Intel in Santa Clara, my research while at Intel labs Barcelona focused on the development of novel techniques that will improve the energy efficiency of future multi-core systems. 

Before joining Intel Barcelona, I was working on spectrum management for wireless networks using unlicensed bands. My research interests include wireless networking, protocols for next-generation wireless networks, self-organising networks/multi-agent systems.
