I am currently a post-doctoral researcher at IMT Atlantique, Rennes, France, working on Data Anonymisation techniques. I am also a Visiting Fellow to the Bournemouth University Faculty of Science & Technology, U.K.. I hold a PhD in data privacy, received in October 2015 from the Democritus University of Thrace, Greece, within the Algorithms and Privacy Research Unit, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Prior to my PhD, I received a BSc in Informatics from the University of Piraeus, Greece, in 2005 (Department of Informatics), and an MSc in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Edinburgh, UK, in 2006 (Department of Informatics).

Moreover, I have worked as a postgraduate researcher in multiple research projects, both as part of my PhD studies and independently in collaboration with the Computational Systems & Applications Lab of the Athena Research and Innovation Center in Xanthi, Greece.
