Since August 2019, I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics, University of Patras, Greece. From July 2014 to July 2019, I was a Lecturer at the same Department. Previously, I was appointed as a postdoctoral researcher at the Dept. of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Imperial College, London, UK (October 2011-July 2012),
at FORTH, Greece (September 2013-July 2014), at the Dept. of Mathematics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece (Postdoc fellowship awarded by the Research Committee of AUTH, January-December 2013) and at INRIA,
Sophia Antipolis (MAESTRO Group) through the ABCDE ERCIM
fellowship program (May-July 2014, Marie Curie Actions).
My research interests focus on queueing theory, applied probability, stochastic processes, and performance modelling of computer and communication networks.
