Summary Background

In August 2013, I joined the department of Computer and Information Technology at Purdue University. Before this, I was working in IBM's Emerging Technology Institute (ETI). The ETI is an in house incubator team under the WebSphere's CTO. During my IBM tenure, I protyped the MongoDB wire listener for JSON support in DB2 (database system) and WebSphere eXtreme Scale (key/value Elastic Cache). I have also been working on research projects related to OS fingerprinting, caching techniques, and analyzing smartphone traffic patterns, with IBM TJ Watson Research Center.

My graduate studies were funded by IBM, Cisco, Time Warner Cable, ITng Institute, the Academy of Athens and the A. Metzelopoulos scholarship. I have spent a short period in VTT Research Institute in Finland, and in the University of Patras working on the Quality of Server in wireless networks (WiFi, WiMAX and LTE).
