I was born on April 5, 1982, in Athens, Greece. I graduated from high school in the milestone year 2000 and entered the National Technical University of Athens (School of Electrical and Computer Engineering). I graduated in 2005 and on December 2006, I entered the post-graduate curriculum of the School of ECE, NTUA, as a Ph.D. student in the field of High Performance Computing at the Computing Systems Laboratory, under the supervision of the Associate Professor, Nectarios Koziris. My Ph.D. thesis focused on the optimization of the sparse matrix-vector multiplication kernel on modern multicore computer architectures. I received my Ph.D. degree on the apocalyptic December 2012.

I think it's time to admit my passion for cars and driving, so when I have the time and the mood, I get the chance to drive my Peugeot in the winding and demanding mountain roads of Greece, discovering at the same time the beauty of the great outdoors of my country.
A large part of my free time goes to photography, either shooting or developing (digitally) my photos. I started some years ago with a vintage Canon A-1 SLR and recently moved to the digital era with an EOS 50D. My wishlist is still large though, and—unfortunately—expensive. :( You can check my 500px or Picasa accounts, where I upload a selection of my photos, whenever time allows it.
I used to exercise other hobbies earlier, e.g., scale modeling and industrial design (cars, as you might imagine), but, unfortunately, my interest faded out as my free time was continuously shrinking. I hope to get back to them soon!
