Curriculum Vitae (Updated Feb 2022)
I am a third year PhD student in Computer Science at Harvard University, advised by Demba Ba. My research interests revolve around deep learning, mathematics, and optimization. I'm particularly interested in representations, geometry and topology, and dynamics in deep learning. During the summer of 2021 I interned at Amazon where I had the pleasure to be hosted by Karim Helwani. I finished my undergraduate studies at the National Technical University of Athens in Greece, where I conducted my thesis in tropical geometry under the supervision of Petros Maragos.
As a first-generation student, I'm passionate about providing help and guidance to people who have no access to it. This led to the creation of a mentoring initiative, along with the amazing Konstantinos Kallas, that intends to help people applying for PhD programs in Computer Science or engineering fields. If you need a listening ear, I'm always happy to share a piece of my mind, even if it's unrelated to PhD applications.
I collect quotes, enjoy video games, national parks, photography, and TV shows and movies (you can find me on trakt).
