I am a Machine Learning Researcher / Engineer working with Siri Speech at Apple.

I obtained my PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California, where I was working at the Signal Analysis and Interpretation Laboratory, supervised by Professor Shrikanth Narayanan. Prior to joining USC, I obtained my Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, where I completed my thesis under the supervision of Professor Petros Maragos.

I like to spend my free time either hiking a trail or riding my bike. Whenever I have some more time - or just whenever my travel bug kicks in - I pack a few clothes and go discover a new city, country, or continent.
