I am a Ph.D. candidate under the ISN industrial scholarship program, with the participation of NCSR Demokritos, the University of Athens and ATC.
I hold a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science from the University of Ioannina and a M.Sc. in Signal and Information Processing and Learning, from the National Kapodistrian University of Athens.
My B.Sc. / M.Sc. theses focused on image registration through unified particle swarm optimization and video classification using deep neural networks, respectively.
My research interests focus on machine learning, with an emphasis on deep learning approaches for text and multimedia.
I have previously worked as a machine learning research associate in the CERTH and ATHENA research centers.
