Welcome to my website

I am currently an associate professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Leibniz University Hannover and member of the L3S Research Center. My research lies in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning and can be summarized as developing methods for i) learning over complex data and data streams, covering aspects such as adaptive learning, change detection and stability as well as ii) responsible Artificial Intelligence, covering aspects such as fairness-aware learning, data quality and proper evaluation of AI/ML methods.

Prior to joining LUH, I was a post-doctoral researcher at LMU, Munich in the group of H.-P. Kriegel, which I joined in 2010 with an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation fellowship. I obtained my PhD from the Uni. of Piraeus, Athens under the supervision of Y. Theodoridis. I hold a diploma and a M.Sc. in Computer Engineering & Informatics both from the Computer Engineering & Informatics Department (CEID), Uni. of Patras, Greece.

My work has received several awards, including an Alexander von Humboldt fellowship for postdocts, a best-student paper award at ICBK 2018 and the 1st place in the 2006 innovation competition in Greece. My research is supported by prestigues funding bodies, including the German Research Foundation (DFG), the Volkswagen Foundation and the EU.
