I am an Assistant Professor at the Computation-based Science and Technology Research Center at The Cyprus Institute. I obtained my MSc and PhD from the Department of Computing at Imperial College London, where I remained as a Research Associate and subsequently an Honorary Research Fellow. I completed my undergraduate studies at the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications at the University of Athens, Greece, and have also held faculty and Visiting Researcher positions at the Department of Computing at Goldsmiths, University of London, and the Dept. of Computer Science, Rutgers University respectively.
I am interested in developing machine learning (ML) algorithms that are robust, efficient, generalizable, and interpretable - often by learning representations that carry such properties in a deep learning (DL) context.
I work in a wide range of applications, such as computer vision (CV) and natural language processing (NLP), while I am particularly interested in inter-disciplinary applications, such as machine learning for climate monitoring and earth observation, health, and science.
