I am 3rd-year Ph.D. Student and Research Assistant at the Department of Electrical Engineering of University at Buffalo, The State University of New York. My academic and research advisor is Professor Dimitris A. Pados.
Prior to joining UB, I obtained my Engineering Diploma (5-year program) and M.Sc. degrees, both in Electronic and Computer Engineering, from the Technical University of Crete, Greece, working under the guidance of Associate Professor George N. Karystinos.
I am Graduate Student Member of the societies IEEE Signal Processing, IEEE Communications, IEEE Computational Intelligence, IEEE Information Theory, and SPIE and an invited reviewer for IEEE Transactions on Multimedia and IEEE Wireless Communications Letters.
In June 2013, I received the Best Paper Award at the 10th IEEE International Symposium on Wireless Communication Systems (ISWCS 2013), in Ilmenau, Germany, for the paper "Some options for L1-subspace signal processing."
Outlier-resistant (subspace) data processing;
Geometric combinatorics and low-complexity optimization algorithms.
Adaptive statistical optimization with limited data.
Channelization in cognitive communication systems.
Physical-layer-protected communication systems.
Current focus: Optimal (and near optimal) algorithms for L1-principal-subspace data analysis.
