I am a final year PhD candidate at the Computing Laboratory
of the University of Cambridge. I
am a member of the Systems Research
Group under the supervision of Dr. David Greaves
working on the Pebbles project.
My second supervisor is Dr. Andrew Gordon who is
a member of the Programming Principles and Tools group
across the road at Microsoft Research.
I was born in Athens, first son of a family of medical doctors. I spent some time
growing up with my grand parents in the small village Labena outside of
before joining my parents in the States where my
was doing his fellowship in intensive care.
At some point we decided to go back to Greece as it was time for me to
go to primary school. After completing my early studies
it was time to move once more to the northern suburbs of Athens and continue my studies at the
Arsakeio-Tositseio School (established in 1836). I had an amasing time as a student avoiding classes, always
carrying my basketball around and going for 3-point shootouts at the breaks. This was the place
where I met what I consider my best friends. Naturally all this had to end, rather abruptly,
when it was time to go to university.
Some call it luck or fate, others coincidence but in any case out of some kind of undescribable
external force driving my moves I ended up at the University of Kent
doing a degree in Computer Science. After four years of
studies, a year-long placement in America with Sun Microsystems,
I decided to continue my studies and move once more to London and
Notorious about not being able to stay in a city for more than a year, I've now relocated to Cambridge
where I hope to try something different and spend three years in
one place, thinking about
