I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the Department of Computer Science at City University London. Before this, I was a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Computing, Imperial College London. I obtained my Ph.D. from the Computer Laboratory (SRG/netos group) in Cambridge University. I hold a M.Sc.and a B.Sc. degrees from the Computer Science Department of the University of Crete, Greece.
