About

I am a post-doctoral researcher at Microsoft Research New England working on Mechanism Design, Algorithms and Machine Learning.

On August 2018, I will join the Theory of Computing group at UW Madison as an Assistant Professor of Computer Science.

I completed my PhD in the Theory of Computation group at MIT under the supervision of Costis Daskalakis. I grew up in Athens, Greece where I also had my undergraduate studies at the National Technical University of Athens.

Research

I am interested in Algorithmic Game Theory, Learning Theory as well as in the Design, Analysis and Theory of Algorithms.
