I joined the KIOS Research and Innovation Center of Excellence (CoE) at the University of Cyprus in May 2017 where I am currently a Research Lecturer contributing to various projects related to monitoring, management, and security of critical infrastructures and cyber-physical systems. Before that, I was leading the geolocation technology research in Huawei Technologies Ireland Research Center working on the design of data-driven positioning solutions for cellular network planning and optimization. In the past few years, I have contributed to attracting funding of around 1M from EU and national research and innovation calls. I am currently involved in two ongoing H2020 projects leading the UCY/KIOS team, namely CUREX that is related to secure and private health data exchange and CARAMEL that is related to AI-based cybersecurity for connected and automated vehicles.

I hold a Diploma in Computer Engineering and Informatics (2003) and an M.Sc. in Integrated Hardware and Software Systems (2005) from the University of Patras, Greece, and a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from the University of Cyprus (2014). During my Ph.D. I coached the development of several award-winning indoor localization, tracking, and navigation prototype systems, which have been released under open-source licenses, including Airplace and Anyplace. For my doctoral research work, I received the Alpha Bank Cyprus Award for “Creative Research and Innovation”.

I serve as TPC member of the International Conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation (IPIN), the IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) Ad-hoc and Sensor Networking (AHSN) and Mobile and Wireless Networks (MWN) Symposiums. I regularly review papers for conferences and articles for high impact journals, including IEEE’s TMC, TC, TKDE, JSAC, and TVT. My research interests include mobile and pervasive computing, positioning and tracking technologies, and location-based services.
