I am a PhD student with the Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto. I am a member of the Computer Systems & Networks Research Group, advised by Professor Angela Demke Brown.

I completed my M.Sc. in Computer Science at the University of Toronto with Professor Renée J. Miller in January of 2015. My thesis was titled " A Survey of Recommendation Approaches and New Applications of Recommendations to Data Science". I received my Engineering Degree in Electronic and Computer Engineering from the Technical University of Crete (Chania, Crete, Greece) under the supervision of Professor Antonios Deligiannakis, in August 2012. My thesis was titled "A Rich Media Mobile Web Application for Visitors and the Community of the Technical University of Crete".
