IntroI was born in Eleftheroupolis (also known as Pravi), a small town near Kavala city. I obtained my 5year diploma from the Department of Computer Engineering and Informatics, University of Patras, Greece and my PhD from the Department of Informatics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. Since May 2016, I am an Associate Professor with the Department of Informatics of Aristotle University. According to Google Scholar my hindex is 25 and according to American Mathematical Society my Erdős number is 3. Research InterestsMy current research interests span the fields of DATABASES and DATA MINING. In particular, I am interested in efficient query processing techniques in database systems (multidimensional data management, spatiotemporal data management), algorithms for mining graphs (dense subgraph discovery, frequent subgraphs, hidden graphs, probabilistic graphs), parallel and distributed techniques for massive data sets using Spark and Hadoop, and data management and mining over data streams.
