I am a research associate at the University of Sheffield. I'm primarily based at SITraN working in Prof. Neil Lawrence's machine learning group, but I'm also member of Sheffield Robotics.

My area of interest is Machine Learning with applications (mainly) in robotics, computational biology and computer vision.

In February 2013 I completed a 3 month internship in Microsoft Research, Redmond, in the Adaptive Systems and Interaction group.

Prior to starting a PhD, I received my MSc from the Department of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh and my BSc from the Department of Informatics & Telecommunications at the University of Athens.
