I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor doing research under the supervision of Professor Rada Mihalcea.

I received my Ph.D. in 2019 as a member of the joint doctorate program between the University of Texas at Arlington and the National Center of Scientific Research, "Demokritos" under the supervision of Professor Fillia Makedon & Professor Vangelis Karkaletsis. Before that, I received a M.Eng from the Department of Electronics & Computer Engineering at the Technical University of Crete in 2013 (5-year program). I conducted my M.Eng. Thesis under the supervision of Professor Vassilis Digalakis.

My primary research interests are on the fields of Multi-Modal Signal Processing, Human Machine Interaction and Machine Learning with a special focus on User Behavior Understanding, Modeling & Monitoring.
