I am a 2nd year Ph.D. student in computer vision at Computer Science and Electronic Engineering (CSEE) school of University of Essex, with an awarded doctoral scholarship. I work at Embedded and Intelligent Systems (EIS) Research Laboratory where I am co-advised by Professor Klaus McDonald-Maier, Professor Ales Leonardis and Dr. Shoaib Ehsan. My research interests range on various topics in computer vision and machine learning. Among other things, I am working on deep convolutional networks and AI tasks like scene understanding and large-scale image recognition.
Prior to enrolling at Essex, I completed two postgraduate programmes: (a) MSc in Computer Vision at the University of Dijon in France and (b) MSc in Informatics & Multimedia at the Technological Education Institute of Crete in Greece.
Before that, I received my BSc in Informatics Engineering from the Technological Education Institute of Crete, Greece. My current research examines the detection of human rights violations throughout real-world images.
I am also fortunate to serve as a graduate research assistant for the Natural Interaction Research Team (NIRTeam), based at the Technological Educational Institute of Crete's Department of Informatics Engineering, as well as being a member of the official community of current and former VIBOT (Erasmus mundus masters in vision & robotics) students.
