I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science and Engineering Department of the
University at Buffalo, The State University of New York. I completed my PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University
in August 2010. My dissertation titled "Exotic Routing
Protocol Design and Implementation for Wireless Mesh Networks" was supervised by
Y. Charlie Hu. Previously, I received my Bachelor's degree from the School of Electrical and Computer
Engineering, at the National
Technical University of Athens (NTUA).
My research interests
are broadly in experimental wireless networking and mobile computing, with a focus on high performance protocol design and implementation, testbed prototyping,
network measurements, and performance evaluation. I lead the UB Wireless Networking and Systems Lab ( UB WiNS Lab).
