Short Bio

I was born in Heraklion, Crete. This is the place i grew up, studied and currently live. I mostly spent my childhood in Herkalio and the places my parents grew up. My father's birth place is a village called Roussa Ekklisia (~10 km from Sitia). My mother's place is a mountain village called Anogeia (located at the slopes of Psiloreitis mountain).

I graduated from High School in 2001 and joined the Department of Applied Mathematics of University of Crete. In 2004 I joined Computer Science Department where I received my Bachelor degree in 2008 and my Master of Science on Information Systems in 2010. From 2007 I have been a member of Information Systems Laboratory (FORTH-ICS) with an one-year interval that found me in the army (in 2010).

Nowadays I live in Iraklion and work as an R & D Engineer at the Information Systems Laboratory of Institute of Computer Science, FORTH. My main research interests include: information systems, conceptual modelling, knowledge representation using Semantic Web technologies, semantic data integration, object-oriented languages and frameworks. I have been involved in several national, European and international projects. I have co-authored more than 35 publications in several conferences, scientific journals and periodicals. Finaly, I have co-authored book Cinderella’s Stick: A Fairytale for Digital Preservation with my colleauge Yannis Tzitzikas.

In my free time I enjoy moving around with my wife Katerina and my beloved daughter Marianna. My hobbies include: reading, hiking, travelling with my bike.

You can find my detailed CV here.

Software

GRSF-Services
A set of services responsible for the construction and maintenance of Global Record of Stocks and Fisheries (GRSF)

X3ML Engine
X3ML Engine is a tool that handles that generation of URIs and the transformation of data resources

Matware
MatWare is a tool for constructing domain-specific warehouses by aggregating semantic data. The main objective is to tackle the need for having integrated sets of facts regarding a particular domain

LifeWatch Data Services
LifeWatch Greece Data Services provide the users the appropriate tools to: (a) publish their datasets as Linked Data, (b) import the datasets to the LifeWatch Greece infrastructure, (c) perform information quality improvements and (d) provide the means to efficiently discover datasets

Gap Identification Service
Gap Identification Service has been based on GapManager. It has been developed in the context of SCIDIP-ES project. It allows (a) checking the intelligibility/ task performability, (b) identifying dependency-related risks and (c) computing intelligibility gaps

Gap Manager
Gap Manager is one of the key components of CASPAR. It can aid several tasks related to the preservation of the intelligibility of digital objects. It can be considered as an advanced and extensible semantic registry of data formats

PreScan
PreScan is a tool for that can aid the automating the scanning of file systems, the extraction of embedded metadata, the transformation of these metadata to ontological instances and also supports the maintenance of such metadata

Timer
Timer is a plugin that can be used for measuring the time when running various tasks in a java program. It is configurable to support aggregate functions over various timers and provides a lightweight solution for benchmarking applications
