About Me

I am a Ph.D. student in the ECE Department (DICE track), at the University of Texas at Austin, where I am fortunate to be advised by Prof. Aryan Mokhtari. I am also a part of the Wireless Networking and Communications Group (WNCG).

My research interest lies on the theory and applications of optimization in large-scale machine learning and data science problems. More specifically, I study different aspects of Federated Learning and Decentralized Optimization. I am also interested in the area of adaptive optimization and I am actively working on bridging the gap between SGD and adaptive methods both in convex and non-convex regimes. I have worked as an applied scientist intern in the group of Alexa at Amazon where the focus of my work was developing scalable Federated Learning algorithms in regimes with various degrees of heterogeneity.

Before joining UT Austin I completed my undergraduate studies at the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications and received my MSc on Logic, Algorithms and Theory of Computation from the Department of Mathematics at the University of Athens under the supervision of Prof. Dimitris Fotakis.
