Degree Level/Concentration: Ph.D. Astronomy; BA Physics


Professional Background:
I received my Bachelor in Physics from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki Greece and my Ph.D. in Astronomy from University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign. I have worked in the areas of computational astrophysics and high performance computer applications at UC San Diego and the San Diego Supercomputer center and I am currently working for Research Computing and Academic Technologies at Northwestern University.My area of specialty is large-scale computer applications that utilize local and federated computational resources with an emphasis on the science of Astrophysics and Cosmology. I am the 'champion' for Northwestern University's XSEDE (Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment) access, a federated resource that connects researchers on NSF-funded computational platforms. I have taught courses in Physics, Mathematics and Computational Science at Norte Dame, University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign, University of California at San Diego and Northwestern University.
