Hello World

I’m currently a Full-Time Lecturer at the Department of Computer Science, University of Nicosia and senior member of the Artificial Intelligence Lab.

Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Computer Science, University of Cyprus and Senior Researcher at the Laboratory for Internet Computing.

My research interests include Data-Intensive Computing with particular focus in Geo-Distributed Big Data Management, Data Visualization and Data Mining over Cloud, IoT and Edge Computing topologies.

My PhD dissertation targeted developing low-cost probabilistic and adaptive learning models for approximate monitoring in order to improve energy- efficiency and reduce both the volume and velocity of data generated and consumed by IoT services. For the research conducted during my doctoral studies, I was selected by the Heidelberg Laureate Forum as one of the 100 young promising researchers in Computer Science for 2015.

I am currently contributing as a Work Package Leader (Data Management for Fog Services) to the RAINBOW H2020 EU co-funded project. RAINBOW aims to develop an open and trusted fog computing platform that facilitates the deployment of scalable and heterogeneous IoT services by pushing orchestration and data management intelligence to the network “edge” while also ensuring security and privacy primitives across the device- fog-cloud-application stack.

Stay tuned as this Fall (2020) sees the start of the FlockAI project which I am the Project Coordinator. FlockAI aims to develop innovative AI-enabled self-adaptive algorithms to ease energy consumption and improve data delivery timeliness in drone swarms.

I've also worked on other cool projects which you can take at look at here.

RAINBOW - an open and trusted fog computing platform

The vision of RAINBOW is to design and develop an open and trusted fog computing platform that facilitates the deployment and management of scalable, heterogeneous and secure IoT services and cross-cloud applications (i.e., microservices). RAINBOW falls within the bigger vision of delivering a platform enabling users to remotely control the infrastructure that is running, potentially, on hundreds of edge devices (e.g., wearables), thousands of fog nodes in a factory building or flying in the sky (e.g., drones), and millions of vehicles travelling in a certain area or across Europe. RAINBOW aspires to enable fog computing to reach its true potential by providing the deployment, orchestration, network fabric and data management for scalable and secure edge applications, addressing the need to timely process the ever-increasing amount of data continuously gathered from heterogeneous IoT devices and appliances. Our solution will provide significant benefits for popular cloud platforms, fog middleware, and distributed data management engines, and will extend the open-source ecosystem by pushing intelligence to the network edge while also ensuring security and privacy primitives across the device-fog-cloud-application stack. To evaluate its wide applicability, RAINBOW will be demonstrated in various real world and demanding scenarios, such as automated manufacturing (Industry 4.0), connected vehicles and critical infrastructure surveillance with drones. These application areas are safety-critical and demanding; requiring guaranteed extra-functional properties, including real-time responsiveness, availability, data freshness, efficient data protection and management, energy-efficiency and industry-specific security standards.

CELAR - Cloud ELasticity pRovisioning

Auto Scaling Resources is one of the top obstacles and opportunities for cloud computing: consumers can minimize the execution time of their tasks without exceeding a given budget. Cloud providers maximise their financial gain while keeping their customers satisfied and minimizing administrative costs. Many systems claim to offer adaptive elasticity, yet the “throttling” is usually performed manually, requiring the user to figure out the proper scaling conditions. In order to harvest the benefits of elastic provisioning, it is imperative that it be performed in an automated, fully customizable manner. CELAR delivers a fully automated and highly customisable system for elastic provisioning of resources in cloud computing platforms.

JCatascopia Cloud Monitoring System

JCatascopia is a fully automated, multi-layer, interoperable Cloud Monitoring System suitable for monitoring elastically adaptive Cloud applications. JCatascopia can be utilized to collect monitoring metrics from multiple level of the underlying Cloud infrastructure as well as performance metrics from Cloud applications and subsequently distribute them to subscribed users and platform operators. JCatascopia is enhanced with a metric subscription rule mechanism where application developers can subscribe to aggregated metrics and also compose high-level metrics from low-level metrics. Users and platform operators can monitor the performance of their applications and the underlying platform by accessing metrics through the JCatascopia RESTful API or via the JCatascopia web interface which generates for each metric real-time graphs.

Creating new pages

Is it easy to do?

A: Yes, simply add a <section class="content"> into the <div id="page"></div> and create a tag link with the (class="menu").

See the example:
<a href="#blog" id="blog" class="menu">Blog Link</a>

<div id="page">
  <section id="blog-page" class="content">
    <div class="inner">
      ...page content
    </div>
  </section>

</div>

Changing the content

Metroid was designed to be simple to use and customize. Here's how easy it is to use it.

How to change the text of my site?

A: Everything that is displayed on the screen, whether text, form boxes, portfolio or progress bars, are written in a single file named "index.html". The screen changes are simulated by script calls, so our theme is considered Onepage.

How to change profile picture?

A: Go to the folder "img/profile/" and replace the file "photo.jpg". We recommend that you use a square photo with 245x245 pixels.

Note : We recommend that you use the same sizes as the profile pictures and blog to keep the layout is appropriate in all resolutions (screen, tablet and mobile).

Icons | Credits: Font Awesome (https://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/)

Changing the style

The Metroid comes with predefined CSS files with 10 different colors in different color tones. In addition, we selected 20 patterns to choose as background.
Patterns | Credits: Subtle Patterns (https://subtlepatterns.com/)

How to do?

A: Just choose the color and pattern you want and change the CSS call into index.html file on line 32. To configure the desired pattern go to the folder "img/bg/" and see the numbering pattern to set the line 54 into index.html.

See the example:
Line 32: <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/colors/color-name.css" id="color" />
Change to name of color.

Line 54: <body class="bg01">
Change from '01' to '20'.

Can I set up my colors in the theme?

A: Yes, simply access the file "custom.css", include your colors there, comment out the line 32 and uncomment line 33.

Typography

Metroid used fonts from Google Fonts. There are amazing font styles in Google Font that you can choose. So, you can choose the better font to you, and apply in your new website. We are using the font "Ubuntu" in all Metroid's pages. Enjoy and customize!

Use simple tags to create your headers, texts and lists.
