I am a postdoctoral researcher at Aalto university working in Prof. Simo Särkkä’s group.
Previous to this, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Information Technology Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (Gaithersburg MD, USA) working with Dr. Antonio Possolo. Before joining NIST, I was doing my PhD (thesis title: Bayesian nonparametrics and Applications) in the Department of Mathematics, Division of Statistics at University of the Aegean, Greece under the supervision of Prof. Spyros Hatjispyros.
Further back in time, I received a MSc in Statistics from the same department and I studied Mathematics at the University of Patras, Greece with a specialization on Computational Mathematics and Informatics.
My research interests lie in Bayesian nonparametrics, MCMC algorithms and nonlinear time series.
