Biographical Information

I am a Research Fellow at the CREST research centre, and a member of the SOLAR research group, of the Department of Computer Science at University College London (UCL), in the UK. My research supervisors are Professor Federica Sarro and Professor Mark Harman.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), in the Netherlands, and a member of SERG, under the supervision of Dr. Georgios Gousios and Professor Arie van Deursen.

I finished my PhD in Software Engineering in the Department of Management Science and Technology, at the Athens University of Economics and Business, in Greece, under the supervision of Professor Diomidis Spinellis.

Before that, I pursued my MSc in Computing (Software Engineering) at Imperial College London, in the UK. I received my BSc degree in Management Science and Technology from the Department of Management Science and Technology, of the Athens University of Economics and Business, in Greece.


My research interests lie in the areas of empirical software engineering, software verification, software analytics, and programming languages. Through my research, I wish to combine software engineering and verification techniques (including static and dynamic analysis) for building methods and tools that can improve the robustness of software systems and increase programmer productivity. Recently, I have been also interested in software optimisation, including energy efficiency and runtime performance.
