Welcome

 
I am a fourth-year Computer Science Ph.D. candidate at the University of California, Los Angeles. I am fortunate enough to work with some great folks at the Internet Reseach Laboratory and be supervised by Professor Lixia Zhang. I am interested in building Internet-scale network systems and protocols, focusing on Information Centric Networking (ICN) and Named Data Networking (NDN).

Formerly, I received my 5-year diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens. While being there, I was an Undergraduate Student Researcher at the NETwork Management & Optimal DEsign (NETMODE) Laboratory under the supervision of Professor Vasilis Maglaris. My diploma thesis was about network virtualization in Multi-Tenant OpenFlow/Software Defined Networking (SDN) environments. Specifically, we proposed and evaluated various slicing policies (network control-plane slicing methods). This work can be found here.

News

 
June 2017: Our paper "On the Evolution of ndnSIM: an Open-Source Simulator for NDN Experimentation" was accepted to ACM SIGCOMM Computer Communication Review (CCR) and will be published in the July issue of the journal.

April 2017: Our paper "nTorrent: Peer-to-Peer File Sharing in Named Data Networking" was accepted to ICCCN 2017, which will be held in Vancouver, Canada from July 31 to August 3, 2017.

March 2017: I was honored to give 2 technical talks at NDNcomm 2017 in Memphis, TE. On the first day, I presented nTorrent, a peer-to-peer file sharing NDN application. On the second day, I talked about the evolution of ndnSIM, a popular NDN simulation ecosystem used by hundrends of users all around the world. (video of 1st day--my presentation starts at 3:17:20) (video of 2nd day--my presentation starts at 2:17:42)

February 2017: I will be interning at Intel Corporation in Santa Clara, CA from April to September 2017.

September 2016: During my summer internship at Cisco, Ralph Droms, Dave Oran, Jim Gibson, Ilya Moiseenko and I submitted two Internet Drafts to the Internet Research Task Force (IRFT) ICN Research Group (ICNRG). Those drafts describe the protocol specification of ICN Ping and ICN Traceroute.

May 2016: I successfully passed my PhD Qualifying Exams (oral and written) and I have officially advanced to candidacy. My work can be found here.

April 2016: I will be interning at Cisco Systems in Cambridge, MA during summer 2016. I am fortunate enough to have Dr. Ralph Droms as my manager.
