I am an 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 areas of computer networks and systems, security, edge computing, and Internet of Things (IoT). I have done extensive work in the areas of Information Centric Networking (ICN) and Named Data Networking (NDN). My research intersects with multiple areas of computer science, such artificial intelligence, augmented reality, 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.
