I am a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate in the Computer Science Department at Cornell University; extremely fortunate to be advised by Prof. Jon Kleinberg.

My interests lie in algorithms and networks, exploring their roles within large-scale social and information systems, and understanding their wider societal implications. I am also affiliated with Cornell’s Artificial Intelligence, Policy, and Practice (AIPP) initiative.

During Summer 2023, I interned at the Office of Applied Research at Microsoft researching the use of large language models in collective intelligence. During my Ph.D., I interned at the User Modeling Research Team at Twitter Cortex, where I worked on scalable methods for node classification. I have also contributed to the open-source GeomScale organization and the volesti package.

My research is supported by the Onassis Scholarship, and has been supported in the past by a LinkedIn Ph.D. Fellowship, a grant from the A.G. Leventis Foundation, a grant from the Gerondelis Foundation, and a Cornell University Fellowship.

I earned my undergraduate degree from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens, where I completed my thesis at the Computation And Reasoning Laboratory (CoReLab) under the supervision of Prof. Dimitris Fotakis. I have also been a researcher for the Business Analytics Lab (BALab) at the Department of Management Science and Technology at the Athens University of Economics and Bussiness, supervised by Prof. Diomidis Spinellis working on applications of machine learning and networks on the topic of software architecture recovery.
