I hold a 5-year diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering (2009), an MSc in Computer Networks and Security (2011), and a PhD in Computer Networks (2015); all from Democritus University of Thrace, Xanthi, Greece. The title of my PhD thesis is "Towards a Future Internet Architecture: Protocols and Support Mechanisms" (more details here).
Over the past eight years, I have participated in eight multi-partner R&D projects, funded by the European Commission, the European Space Agency and the Greek government, having been frequently assigned the role of Task and Technical Leader. During the summer of 2011, I also served as a visiting researcher at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, investigating issues related to Delay-/Disruption-Tolerant Networking (DTN).
Recently, I joined Sky UK, as a DevOps Network Planner, where I am mainly involved in insight and planning activities regarding the Voice and Mobile domains. I am also an associate member of InterSys Lab and I am affiliated with Athena RIC.
I specialize in data analytics, network modelling, network simulations, communication frameworks for specific network architectures (please see below) and architectures/technologies for IoT. In my current role at Sky, I have a wide exposure in various data analytics fields including data engineering, data mining, data visualization and data science.
My networking expertise lies mainly in the areas of Queue Management and Delay-/Disruption-Tolerant Networking (DTN). In particular, I have worked extensively with the Interplanetary Overlay Network (ION) software distribution by Jet Propulsion Laboratory and IBR-DTN software distribution by Braunschweig University. I also contributed code to the open-source ION software community by developing and maintaining the Bundle Streaming Service Framework.
Apart from those contributions, I have also published a substantial amount of work in the areas of network queue management and distributed data dissemination architectures. My research interests also include wireless sensor networks, social networking, network security and ubiquitous networking.
