About

I am currently a PhD student in Computer Science @ the Southern Illinois University Carbondale, under Dr. Hoxha.

I took my Master of Science from SIU and my Bachelor of Science from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece under Dr. Karali.

I firmly support that there is nothing a quick script cannot fix.

Overall I am a passionate programmer that likes to bring agents to life.

Current interests: Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Game Development, Autonomous Vehicles
