Biographical Information

Since May 2019, I am a Research Fellow at the CREST research centre of the Department of Computer Science at University College London (UCL). My research supervisors are Dr. Federica Sarro and Professor Mark Harman.

Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Delft University of Technology, and a member of the Software Engineering Research Group, under the supervision of Dr. Georgios Gousios.

I finished my PhD in Software Engineering in the Department of Management Science and Technology, at the Athens University of Economics and Business, under the supervision of Professor Diomidis Spinellis. Before that, I pursued my MSc in Computing (Software Engineering) at Imperial College London.

Research

My research interests lie in the areas of software engineering, software verification, crash data analytics, and programming languages. Through my research, I wish to combine software engineering and verification techniques (including static and dynamic analysis) for building tools and techniques that can improve the robustness of software systems and increase programmer productivity.
