Short CV

Diploma of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Patras, 2006

Ph.D. Degree in Applied Sciences, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, 2012

Postdoc, University College London, 2013-2015


I am a Professor (hoofdocent) at the Electronics and Informatics department (ETRO) at Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), where I lead a research team of a number of PhD researchers and postdoctoral researchers working in various aspects of machine learning and signal processing.

I am also the Programme Director of the Master in Applied Computer Science at VUB.

My research currently focuses on signal processing and machine learning theory and algorithms for explainable AI with applications in computer vision (image and video processing), data mining (air pollution data, social media data, recommender systems), and natural language processing (fact verification).

I have authored 120+ journal and conference publications, book chapters, and two international patent applications in the areas of machine learning, signal processing and information theory.

I am a member of the IEEE and EURASIP, and I serve as vice-chair of the EURASIP Technical Aread Committee on Signal and Data Analytics for Machine Learning.

I have received the Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Patras, and the PhD in Engineering Sciences (Highest Honors) from the VUB, Belgium, in 2012. From 2013 to 2015, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at University College London, UK.
