Update - Sep 2013

I have recently moved to the University of Kent, UK as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Ubiquitous computing, at the School of Engineering and Digital Arts.
I am looking for good research students to work on people-centric and mobile sensing, internet of things, and wireless sensor networks. If you are interested, please feel free to contact me.

Profile

I am a Research Associate in the Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge. I am a member of the Mobile Systems team and I belong to the Networks and Operating Systems Group.

Education and Previous Employment

I received a Diploma in Computer Engineering and Informatics from the University of Patras, Greece. I received an M.Sc. and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Lancaster University, UK.

I worked as a Research Assistant and later as a Research Associate in the Computing Department of Lancaster University. I spent the summer of 2000 as a visiting researcher at Sony Electronics Research Labs, in San Jose, California. Since January 2010 I am a Senior Research Associate at the Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge.
