- Colombo: development of a tool for the programming and seamless parallel execution of CA models.
I graduated in 1994 from the University of Crete with a BSc in Mathematics. I then moved on to Edinburgh University and graduated in 1995 with an MSc in Computer Science, following the "Parallel Systems" course theme.
My first employment was at Heriot-Watt University, where I worked as a Research Associate in the Department of Computing and Electrical Engineering. In September 1996 I enlisted in the Hellenic Navy for my compulsory, 21-month National Service.
In my free time I like watching football and I am also keen on gardening.
