Bio. I received my Diploma degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, in 1996. I received my Master's and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, in 1998 and 2003 respectively. I joined the EECS faculty at UCI in Jan. 2006, where I am currently an Associate Professor. My research interests are in the area of computer networks and include mobile and social networks, network measurement, privacy, and network coding. I have held positions as a postdoctoral research fellow at Sprintlabs (2003) and at Stanford University (2004-2005), member of the technical staff at Arista Networks (2005), and visiting faculty at the IT University of Copenhagen (2012-2013). I have also co-founded Shoelace Wireless. I received the NSF CAREER award in 2008 and the HSSoE Faculty Midcareer Research Award in 2014. I am a senior member of the IEEE, and I have served as an Associate Editor for IEEE/ACM Trans. on Networking (2013-2015) and ACM CCR (2016+). At UCI, I am affiliated with the EECS Dept., the CS dept (joint appt), CalIT2, CPCC, and I am currently the co-Director for the Networked Systems Program.
