About Me

I am a postdoctoral Research Associate at the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh.

My research focuses on AI-supported human-machine collaboration. In particular, I am working on formal verification, process modelling, workflow analysis and social machines, and their applications in healthcare.

I am currently part of the SOCIAM project which focuses on the theory and practice of Social Machines. I am also a member of the Centre of Intelligent Systems and their Applications (CISA) and the Mathematical Reasoning (DReaM) group.

I am also an entrepreneur, working on the commercialisation project WorkflowFM, aiming on the optimisation of everyday clinical practices.

Studies

I obtained my PhD at the same school, under the supervision of Jacques Fleuriot. My thesis is titled “A Formal Verification Approach to Process Modelling and Composition”.

My MSc thesis, under the same supervisor, is titled On the automation of Inductive Proofs in HOL Light.

I obtained my undergraduate degree – BSc(Hons) equivalent – at the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, University of Athens, Greece.

Research

My research focuses on AI-supported human-machine collaboration. In particular, I am working on formal verification, process modelling, workflow analysis and social machines, and their applications in healthcare.

Process Modelling

Process Modelling

I provide consultation for systematic process modelling of collaborative tasks. I develop diagrammatic, process-based models in close collaboration with the involved stakeholders, and then analyse them with rigorous means.

Formal Verification

Formal Verification

I use mathematical logic and mechanical theorem proving to formally specify requirements and verify properties for trustworthy systems. In particular, I am interested in automated reasoning, theorem proving, embedded logics, and linear logic.

Workflow Analysis and Deployment

Workflow Analysis and Deployment

A big part of my research is on AI-based methods and tools for analysis and deployment of coordination protocols as workflows, including verification, concurrent enactmentdecentralised architectures, and self-evolving workflows.

Social Machines

Social Machines

My primary focus is on protocols for social coordination, agent-based human computation, establishing trust through formal verification, process decentralisation, and engineering.

Technology Innovation

Technology Innovation

I investigate cultural, ethical, and resource constraints in innovation and change management in large and public organisations, including issues of privacy and responsibility.

Healthcare Informatics

Healthcare Informatics

Applications of my research aim to improve everyday practices and the coordination of health and social care teams. I help NHS teams develop and optimize models of care in order to deliver safer and more consistent care across patients.

These are student projects that I have supervised or co-supervised.

Past Projects

These are projects that I have previously been involved in and are now considered to be concluded. Some of these are still being maintained or used in further research.

This list is not exhaustive. I’m gradually updating the information to make it up to date.

Personal

I was born in Athens, Greece which I like to visit as often as possible.

I enjoy watching a number of TV series, as well as e-sports.

I play casual basketball regularly (contact me if interested to join).
