I joined the graduate program of MIT on September 2013 in the Theory of Computation group at CSAIL. I received a Master of Sience degree on February 2016 under the supervision of Ron Rivest. My phD research advisor is Vinod Vaikuntanathan and we are working on post-quantum cryptography.

Before MIT, I was an undergrad student at the Department of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences at National Technical University of Athens where I completed my Diploma Degree. During my time there, I was fortunate to work with Professor Antonios Symvonis.
