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

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. In a previous work I used X-band radar measurements of the ocean surface as a surrogate of video of the ocean surface from a vertical position and a unified scale in order to estimate the pixel to metre scale of the video, as well as the sea state.

My current work focuses on using ocean surface video observations from a monoscopic camera from an angle and using this data in order to create a model that describes the three-dimensional ocean surface elevation. This model can be used for making predictions of the ocean surface elevation based on a video of the ocean surface captured with a monoscopic camera.

Future work will include going into a more challenging problem where the measuring camera is placed on a moving ship, and different approaches in simulating a still video of the ocean surface from a ship and then using the techniques for building a model of the three-dimensional ocean surface.

Research interests: Machine Learning, Remote Sensing, Sea Measurements, Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence, Optimisation, Knowledge Engineering.
