I received the BSc and MSc degrees from the Department of Computer Science, University of Crete, Greece, in 2005 and 2007, respectively. I was awarded a PhD degree in Computer Science from the same department in 2014, while in parallel I attended the undergraduate program of the Department of Mathematics, University of Crete, leading to a BSc degree obtained in 2014. My interests focus on, but not restricted to, signal processing, especially speech and audio processing, time series analysis, machine learning, deep learning architectures, and data analytics for Internet of Things applications and edge computing. My objective is to provide real solutions to real problems.
