I am a PhD Candidate in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research (IEOR) at the University of California Berkeley. My advisor is Professor Shmuel Oren. I completed my undergraduate studies in the school of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece, where I worked with Professor Stavros Papathanasiou.
I am an external collaborator of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. My research is also partly supported by the Tsinghua-Berkeley Shenzhen Institute, Lab 1C (Smart Grid and Renewable Energy). I have also worked for Amazon.com and for the Calibration Service of the Hellenic Air Force.
My research interests lie in the field of large scale optimization for power systems. Specifically, I am interested in developing techniques for modeling and solving mixed integer programs for power systems applications, such as the stochastic unit commitment problem and the power system restoration problem. I have also worked on model predictive control for electric drives and modeling and control for wind turbines and HVDC systems.
I am a fellow of the Onassis Foundation and recepient of the 2013 Chrysovergis Award and the 2013 ECE Kontaxis Award at NTUA.
