Short Academic Biography

I am 3rd-year PhD 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. degree, both in Electronic and Computer Engineering, from the Technical University of Crete, working under the guidance of Associate Professor George N. Karystinos.

I am Graduate Student Member of the IEEE Signal Processing, Communications, Computational Intelligence, and Information Theory societies and a reviewer for IEEE Transactions on Multimedia.
