Short 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 a Professor. 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, the HSSoE Faculty Midcareer Research Award in 2014, the OCEC's Educator Award in 2017, and a UCI Chancellor's Fellowship in 2019. I have served as an Associate Editor for IEEE/ACM Trans. on Networking and ACM CCR, as the General Co-Chair for ACM CoNEXT 2016, and as TPC Co-Chair for ACM SIGMETRICS 2020 and NetCod 2012. At UCI, I am affiliated with EECS dept(where I currently serve as the Department Chair), CS dept (joint appointment), and Networked Systems program (where I previously served as Director).
