About Me

News: I will be joining Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms (MILA) as a Postdoctoral Researcher in September 2019.

I am a PhD student at The University of Edinburgh in School of Mathematics. More specifically I am a member of the Operational Research and Optimization Group (ERGO) under the supervision of Dr. Peter Richtarik.
Before I moved to Edinburgh I spent 4 beautiful years in Athens as undergraduate student in department of Mathematics at National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and 1 year as postgraduate student at Imperial College London where I obtained an MSc in Computing (Computational Management Science).

August-December 2018: I was at Facebook AI Research in Montreal, Canada, doing an internship. I was working mainly with Dr. Mike Rabbat on topics related to Distributed Non-Convex Optimization Algorithms and Deep Learning.

My research interests include (but are not limited to):
Large Scale Optimization, Machine Learning, Randomized numerical linear algebra, Convex Analysis, Randomized and Distributed Algorithms.
