Short CV

I am a tenured Lab Lecturer at the Department of Computer Engineering and Informatics and a research associate at the High Performance Information Systems Laboratory (HPCLab) and the Pattern Recognition Laboratory (PRLab),  University of Patras. I had formerly been an Adjunct Assistant Professor (2008-2013) and a visiting postdoctoral fellow (2013-2017). I have received a diploma, an M.Sc. and a fellowship-awarded Ph.D. from the same department, specializing in knowledge management and discovery on the Web.

I am also adjunct faculty at the Hellenic Open University (2015-onwards) and the Technological Educational Institution of Western Greece (2007-2014)I have been teaching a number of courses at the undergraduate and graduate programs of the Dpt. of Computer Engineering and Informatics, University of Patras, Dpt. of Computer Science in Administration and EconomyDpt. of Business Planning and Information SystemsDpt. of Bussiness Administration, ATEI of Western Greece and Business Administration, Hellenic Open University. I have also taught postgraduate courses at the Computer Science and Engineering program and the Informatics for Life Sciences Masters program, joint with the Departments of Biology, Medicine, Pharmacy and Physics. I have supervised several student dissertations and masters theses at the departments above. I am currently co-supervising 2 Ph.D. theses on semantic interoperability and the evolution of the Web.

For 20 years, I have participated and led a variety of R&D projects with European, national and international funding, focusing on the application and promotion of ICT for the cultural and educational sector. My research interests include big and linked data, digital libraries, knowledge discovery, automated reasoning, metadata integration and the semantic web, where I have published over 80 research articles and papers (google scholar).

I have served as general chair, technical chair and steering committee member in many international conferences and workshops, including IEEE SWARCH-DL.
