I hold a PhD. (2005) and MSc. (2003) in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of California - Riverside (USA) and a B.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of Cyprus (2000). During 2004, I was a visiting researcher at the Network Intelligence Lab of Akamai Technologies in Cambridge USA. Between 2005 and 2012, I have served the University of Cyprus and the Open University of Cyprus as a Lecturer of Computer Science.  Currently, I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Cyprus, directing the Data Management Systems Laboratory (DMSL).
