I am a Research Fellow of the Digital Curation Unit (DCU) of Athena Research Centre and also an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department of theAthens University of Economics and Business (AUEB). I received my Diploma in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the National Technical University of Athens in 1995. In the Fall of 1995, I joined the graduate program in Computer Sciences at the University of Maryland where I received my M.Sc. (1997) and Ph.D. (2000). I then joined the Database Research Department of AT&T Labs-Research in Florham Park, New Jersey where I worked as a Senior Technical Specialist until January of 2006.

My research interests evolve around systems, applications and tools that manage massive amounts of data. These include, among others, data warehouses, integration systems and distributed and pervasive applications. In DCU, I am exploring database preservation practices that will not only allow us to maintain the content of databases but also their utility and functionality over long periods of time. I am interested in developing advanced classification, compression, summarization, indexing, auditing and cataloguing techniques that can scale to handle hundreds of multi-gigabyte datasets.
