In Short

I was born in Chania, island of Crete, Greece. Moved to Patras, Greece to study at the Computer Engineering and Informatics Dept, University of Patras. I received my diploma in 2004 with a score of 8.5/10 and continued my studies at the same department to complete a master's course in Intergrated Software / Hardware Systems. I received my M.Sc. in June 2007 with a score of 9.21/10. At the moment, I am working towards a PhD degree at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Technical University of Crete, Greece.

From October 2008 to this day, I have been working as a research associate for the Telecommunication Systems Institute, Technical University of Crete, engaged in multiple EU and Greek research projects. I have also provided research and development services to Synelixis Solutions Ltd as a senior hardware engineer, as part of the EU-funded research projects FP7-HEAP (completed March 2013), FP7-FASTER (completed January 2015), H2020-COSSIM (completed February 2018) and H2020-EXTRA (completed September 2018).

Currently, I am working at the Η2020 IntellIoT focusing on security aspects of Next Generation IoT systems. In addition to my research work at the Microprocessor and Hardware Laboratory (MHL Lab) of the School of Electronal and Computer Engineering of Technical University of Crete, I work as Linux systems administrator for the MHL lab. Recently, a collaboration with the Foundation of Research and Technology / Institute of Computer Science (FORTH / ICS) has started, focusing on research work related to security and IoT. I also provide consulting for network and server systems setup to small companies as well as linux and web administration services.

I'm mostly involved and interested in VLSI hardware design, both for ASICs and FPGAs. However, my studies and work experience cover a broader range of activities, including software and web development. You can find out more about my work experience and research activities here.
