Research Assistant

University of Glasgow


I am currently working as a Researcher at the School of Computing Science in the University of Glasgow

My research is mainly focused around large scale, complex, cyber-physical systems engineering. As a member of the Glasgow Systems Section (GLASS) I am currently working on the AnyScale Applications EPSRC funded project under the supervision of Dr Jeremy Singer.

Also I am a mentor under the Athena SWAN Mentorship Scheme for postgraduate students.

During my PhD at the University of Strathclyde I have investigated the use of commodity hardware, wireless communications and edge processing in Condition Monitoring of Industrial machines particularly on Ship applications.

Through work experience I have also used data collection and processing for large scale applications in industrial building utility monitoring. Furthermore, I have worked on several embedded software applications such as Cube satellites. I have worked on medical devices, where I am currently a director of Clydescope Health Ltd.

Previously, acquired my MSc in 2008 on Biomedical Engineering at the University of Strathclyde and my Bachelor degree is in Computer Science from the University of Crete where I had worked at the FORTH instituted of research at the Computer Architecture and VLSI Systems Laboratory during my undergraduate thesis.

My research interests are predominantly application driven large scale cyber-physical system architecture designs for the collection and processing of large amounts of data and the problems these introduce to scalability and reliability. Distributed computing and edge processing are able to address much of these issues.

Research Interests

  • Large scale, complex, cyber-physical systems engineering
  • Machine learning and data fusion applications
  • Edge computing
  • Distributed systems
  • Heterogeneous architectures and autonomous systems

Current Projects

The AnyScale Apps started in 2013 and will conclude in 2018. The project is focusing on the "write once, run anywhere" idea and has allowed for varied approaches to be incorporated in providing this automated programming solution. The project is funded by EPSRC.
