about me

My research interests lie in distributed systems and databases. Before joining BU, I was a visiting scholar at the RISELab, UC Berkeley, a senior researcher (oberassistent) at the Systems Group, ETH Zurich, a visiting research fellow at HKU, and a research assistant at the Information Systems Management Institute (IMSI) of the "Athena" Research Center, Greece. I obtained a 5-year diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2008, and a PhD in 2015, both from NTUA.

research interests

I work on scalable data processing systems that are generally applicable, easy to use, and offer strong performance and security guarantees. My ongoing research focuses on Secrecy, a system for secure analytics in multi-cloud and federated environments. Secrecy enables multiple data owners to perform computations on their collective private data while keeping the data siloed from untrusted or unauthorized entities.

prospective students

I am looking for motivated PhD students and postdocs. If you are interested in a PhD, please apply here (deadline Dec 15). If you are interested in a postdoc position, feel free to send me an email.
