I am a 3rd year PhD 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 University of Burgundy, Dijon, France and [b] MSc in Informatics & Multimedia at Technological Education Institute (TEI) of Crete, Greece.
Before that, I received my BSc in Informatics Engineering from the Technological Education Institute (TEI) of Crete, Greece. My current research examines the usage of image representations for visual recognition of human rights violations.
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.
