I am a graduate student in the ECE Department of the University of Texas at Austin, under Alexandros G. Dimakis. Our group moved to Austin in Spring 2013. Prior to that, I spent the first two and a half years of graduate school in the Electrical Engineering Department of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. I received my Diploma in Electronic and Computer Engineering in 2010 from the Technical University of Crete, Chania, Greece, under the supervision of Assistant Prof. George N. Karystinos.
