My research focuses on improving information access using both structured and unstructured sources of information. I'm currently working on making knowledge graphs more accessible to the end-user in search applications by describing & contextualizing their content using text.

I did my bachelor in Computer Science at the University of Athens. I then obtained my MSc in artificial intelligence from the University of Amsterdam. I did my master thesis on explaining relationships between entities in collaboration with Yahoo Labs. The thesis won two national thesis awards (STIL & KION AI). After that I worked at Signal Media as a data scientist before joining UvA again to start my PhD in July 2015.
