We are hiring: One PhD position available in the area of Automated Software Testing at the University of Luxembourg - application deadline: March 31. More details here.

News

I successfully defended my PhD Thesis, and, since September 2016, I have joined the SERVAL research group at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) of the University of Luxembourg as a research associate, under the direction of Prof. Le Traon. My (unfinished) new website can be found here.

Personal (out of date)

I am currently a last-year PhD student at Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB) under the supervision of Prof. Malevris. My current work focuses on reducing the cost of mutation testing via targeting the equivalent mutant problem. My research interests include software engineering, with an emphasis on software testing.

In parallel with my PhD studies, I have been working as a teaching assistant, supporting the INF137 and INF139 software engineering courses of AUEB's MSc in Information Systems.
