I am Iraklis Diakos or (greek) Ηρακλής Διάκος, graduate of University Of Crete where I received my B.Sc. diploma in Computer Science. Currently, I am enrolled in the M.Sc. curriculum of FHMI - the Franco-Hellenic program-, a joint initiative between the University Of Crete (Greece, Crete), Université Paris-Sud XI (France) along with the Université Joseph Fourier (France, Grenoble). My interests lie in the area of local/remote databases, distributed systems, scalable networks and elastic and/or fault-tolerant software. My dissertation thesis, Evaluation of Top-K Queries in P2P networking systems, involved a prototype implementation of HT* and HT+** algorithms by conducting real-world expirements in the PlanetLab network using various data distribution sets so as to evaluate the response time, latency and effects of distributed Top-K queries in a (un)reliable decentralized network.
