I studied Mathematics and completed a two-year MSc in Applied Mathematics & Numerical Analysis at the Department of Mathematics, University of Athens, Greece with grade ”Excellent” (highest mark in the Greek system).
As a MSc student I received a travel grant to visit the Department of Mathematics at the University of North Texas, USA. There I studied an evolution problem of dynamical networks modelled by partial differential equations.
In July 2012 I received my PhD in Mathematics from the Department of Mathematics, University of Athens, Greece, focusing on singular discrete dynamical systems and their applications.
Since then, I have been a Senior researcher at ESIPP, University College Dublin Ireland, and a Post-Doctoral Researcher at MACSI (Mathematics Applications Consortium for Science and Industry), Department of Mathematics & Statistics, University of Limerick, Ireland.
Previously, I worked as a Post-Doctoral Research & Teaching Fellow in Optimization at the School of Mathematics, University of Edinburgh, UK. There, I worked on Optimization methods for the analysis of large scale data sets and on singular systems of fractional nabla difference equations. In addition, I worked for six months as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the Modelling and Simulation Centre, University of Manchester, UK. There I worked on the theoretical development and computational implementation in the non-linear mechanics of discrete systems representing materials microstructures.
Currently I am a UCD Research Fellow at AMPSAS, University College Dublin Ireland.
My current research interests include dynamical systems, mathematics of networks, differential & difference equations, singular systems, fractional calculus, optimization methods, linear algebra, mathematical modeling with applications in power systems, energy systems, circuits and materials.
