I am an Associate Professor and the Vice-Chair at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Cyprus and a member of the Research Laboratory for Foundations of Computing Systems and Theoretical Computer Science. I hold a Ph.D. (December 2003) and M.Sc. (May 2002) in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Connecticut and a B.Sc. (June 1998) in Mathematics from the University of Cyprus. Before joining the CS department of the University of Cyprus in 2014, I worked as a Teaching and Research Assistant at the University of Connecticut, USA (1998-2003).
My research interests are on the Theory and Practice of Fault-tolerant Distributed and Parallel Computing with a focus on Algorithms and Complexity. I have published more than 70 refereed articles in international journals and conference proceedings in my area of study and I have co-authored two books on Distributed Fault-tolerant Cooperative Computing (more details in Publications). I have served on Program Committees of top conferences in Distributed Computing as well as on the Steering Committee (2008-2010, 2010-2012) of the International Symposium on Distributed Computing (DISC). Currently I am on the Steering Comittee (2014-2015) of the ACM Symposium on the Principles of Distributed Computing (PODC). This year I serve as the General Chair of PODC 2015 (more details in Service). Information on my involment in research projects can be found in Projects.
