I am currently a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Exeter.

I am Cypriot and gained a Bachelor's degree from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece in Computer Science with a specialization in Information Systems and a Master's degree from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece in Advanced Information Systems.

My research focuses on the use of Machine Learning techniques for the prediction of the motion and shape of ocean sea waves, using data from sensors placed on a ship, as well as monoscopic video footage. Currently I am using X-band radar measurements in order to estimate the pixel to metre scale of the measurements, as well as the sea state. My future work will include estimating the shape of the waves from radar and real world video measurements of the ocean surface. It will also include estimating a scale for the shape of the waves in order to be transferred in wave measurements in metres. Then Machine Learning techniques will be used in order to predict the motion of the waves in time.

Research interests: Machine Learning, Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence, Optimisation, Knowledge Engineering.
