I am an Assistant Adjunct Professor in the Mathematics Department at UCLA. Previously I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology at UMass Amherst from September 2015 to August 2015 and a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the same institution from September 2012 to August 2015. During my Ph.D. I was fortunate to work at the IACM-FORTH in Crete, Greece in the period from 2008 to 2010.
