I am a first-year graduate student in the Computer Sciences Department at University of Wisconsin-Madison working with Shivaram Venkataraman.
My research interests mostly lie in the area of computer systems, and in particular in data systems, distributed systems and applied machine learning.

Before moving to Madison, I received a Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Thessaly, Greece. In my thesis, I worked with Christos D. Antonopoulos on characterizing programs behavior using low-level hardware metrics that can be found on modern CPUs. In the past, I have also done internships at IBM Research - Zurich and at CERN openlab.
