I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Engineering Department at the University at Albany, State University of New York (SUNY). Before that, I was a postdoctoral research associate with the Coordinated Science Laboratory (CSL) at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). I worked with Maxim Raginsky on problems related to decision making in uncertain environments. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 2014 from the University of Southern California (USC) under the supervision of Urbashi Mitra. I also received my MSc in Electrical Engineering in 2010 from USC and my undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering & Informatics in 2007 from the University of Patras in Greece.


  • I am looking for motivated and enthusiastic graduate or senior undergraduate students who are interested in decision-making under uncertainty research. For more information, please take a look at my pulications. Send me an email to discuss your interests, or to meet if you are already a UAlbany student. pdf
