I am a Senior Researcher in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. I'm currently working with Dave Robertson on the SociaM project, which focuses on the theory and practice of social machines. I'm also running the Code Yourself! and ¡A Programar! MOOCs in introductory computer science.
My research involves modelling and reasoning about complex workflows with the use of artificial intelligence techniques, such as formal methods and intelligent agents. My research focus is on health informatics, and more particularly on healthcare workflow modelling and diagnosis.
I completed my PhD in 2012, under the supervision of Jessica Chen-Burger and Michael Rovatsos. My PhD thesis title is "Analysing Supply Chain Operation Dynamics through Logic-Based Modelling and Simulation". After my doctorate I worked as a Research Associate for WorkflowFM, a health informatics project led by Jacques Fleuriot.
I am interested in the coordination of complex, distributed and dynamic systems, such as healthcare and supply chains. I employ artificial intelligence methods to model, simulate and analyse complex workflows, as well as diagnose delays and poor performance.
I am investigating healthcare procedures followed by clinicians in real-world settings. This includes integrated care pathways and clinical guidelines.
Knowledge representation and reasoning, formal methods and intelligent agents are employed for modelling and diagnosing complex behaviours.
End-to-end smart workflow management: From process modelling to workflow composition, and from simulation and analysis to deployment.
Lecturer in Semantic Web Systems, a course that covers the aims, the fundamentals and the technologies of the semantic web.
Organiser of the hands-on, interactive Innovative Learning Week workshop "Speaking of Informatics: The Art of Science Communication".
Our recent Code Yourself! workshop taught more than 160 kids how to build their own computer games.
Fun judging in a robotics competition for young ones. Can you complete all challenges?
We need more women in tech! I've recently given a talk for CF:G, in an attempt to lure young women into IT.
I was born in Athens, and grew up in the carnival capital of Greece, Patras. I studied Management Science and Technology at the Athens University of Economics and Business, and then decided to do an MSc in Artificial Intelligence at
the University of Edinburgh.
Having done a gap year in Cologne, Germany, I strongly believe in the advantages of youth mobility. I am therefore running the project GapYear, promoting European mobility to young Greeks, funded by the European Commission.
