I am a second-year PhD student in the theory group at the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University. I am advised by Huy Lê Nguyễn and Jonathan Ullman. My research interests lie in learning theory, differential privacy, and their applications in statistics and machine learning.
Prior to joining Northeastern, I received the Electrical and Computer Engineering diploma from the National Technical University of Athens and the MSc on Logic, Algorithms, and Theory of Computation from the University of Athens. During my time in Greece, I studied online learning and I was fortunate to be advised by Dimitris Fotakis.

During Fall '18, I was a teaching assistant for the undergraduate course Algorithms and Data (CS3000), at Northeastern University.
Between Fall '14 and Spring '17, I had been a teaching assistant for several courses at the National Technical University of Athens: Algorithms and Complexity (undergraduate and graduate), Algorithmic Game Theory (graduate), Social Networks (graduate), Computer Programming (undergraduate), and Introduction to Computer Science (undergraduate). During that time, aside from preparing homeworks, I had the pleasure to also do some lectures.
