I joined the graduate program of MIT on September 2011 in the Theory of Computation group at CSAIL. My PhD advisor is Costis Daskalakis and I enjoy working with him on a wide range of problems from auction theory to learning theory.

I grew up in Athens, Greece where I also had my undergraduate studies at the National Technical University of Athens (Sept. 2006 - June 2011). During my time there, I had the opportunity to work with my advisor Dimitris Fotakis on different problems in mechanism design without money.

I spent the summer of 2014 as a research intern at Yahoo! Labs, Sunnyvale working with Chris Wilkens on multiple research and practical questions regarding online ad auctions. I also interned for Google, Cambridge in the mobile search team during summer 2012.
