I received my Ph.D. from the Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization (ACO) program in May 2013
under the supervision of Professor Alan Frieze.
During my first years at Carnegie Mellon University I was supervised by Professor Christos Faloutsos in the Machine Learning Department.
In Fall'13, I am a Science Fellow in Aalto University where I teach a class on complex networks. I am happy to collaborate here with Professor Aristides Gionis .
In Spring'14, I will be a postdoc at the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) in Brown University, for the semester program on Network Science and Graph Algorithms.
My research aims to (a) enable the efficient solving
of graph-related computational tasks and
(b) create value and obtain insights from big data.
Specifically, my work (Ph.D. thesis, M.Sc. thesis) mainly focuses on developing algorithms and tools for managing, analyzing and mining graph data. Also, I participate in an interdisciplinary project on cancer data mining in collaboration with Professor Russell Schwartz.
I am particularly interested into studying structural properties of complex networks, analyzing random processes on graphs, big graph data analytics and stochastic graph models.
