ACM CoNEXT'19 Workshop: Exciting news! Our proposal for the 1st workshop on emerging in-network computing paradigms was accepted by ACM CoNEXT'19. More details to come soon!

Call for students: I am actively looking for motivated and hard-working graduate and undergraduate students to join my newly established research group at the University of Nebraska, Omaha . I currently have multiple open positions for Ph.D. students. Research assistantships for Masters and undergraduate students may also be provided. Please feel free to email me if you are interested.


I am an incoming Assistant Professor in Computer Science at the University of Nebraska, Omaha. I graduated with a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Los Angeles in June 2019. I was fortunate enough to work with some great folks at the Internet Research Laboratory and be supervised by Professor Lixia Zhang.

I am interested in the broader area of Future Internet and network systems. I have done extensive work in the areas of Information Centric Networking (ICN) and Named Data Networking (NDN). I am also interested in emerging paradigms, such as edge computing. My research intersects with multiple areas of computer science, such as security, artificial intelligence, and big data. My goal has been to evaluate my research through open-source prototype implementations (please see my publications and software page for further details).

Before joining UCLA, I received my 5-year diploma (equivalent to M.Eng.) in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens, where I was an Undergraduate Student Researcher at the NETwork Management & Optimal DEsign (NETMODE) Laboratory under the supervision of Professor Vasilis Maglaris. My diploma thesis was about network virtualization in Multi-Tenant OpenFlow/Software Defined Networking (SDN) environments. This work can be found here.
