I am a principal researcher with the Cloud Infrastructure group at Microsoft Research, Cambridge, UK. My research interests span most aspects of computer communications and networks with my current focus being on data centers. In the past, I worked on Internet measurements and monitoring, traffic classification, network management, home networks, social networks, and peer-to-peer networks.
I received my Ph.D from the Computer Science department of the University of California, Riverside, and completed my undergraduate studies at the department of Applied Informatics of the University of Macedonia in Thessaloniki, Greece.
