About me

I am a final year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of York. I am a member of the Artificial Intelligence Group where I work mostly on what we call Knowledge-Based Reinforcement Learning i.e. agents that benefit from domain knowledge. My supervisor is Dr. Daniel Kudenko.

Prior to my PhD, I completed with distinction the MSc in Software Engineering course at the Department of Computer Science, University of York. My dissertation was under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Kudenko and involved the design of a reinforcement learning agent for the adversarial version of Tetris.

I completed my undergraduate studies in the Department of Electronic Computing Systems at the TEI of Piraeus, Greece. My final year project involved the design and implementation of a web-based timetabling system for the ECS Department and was supervised by Dr Sotirios K. Leventis.

I spend my time searching for methods to create adviced agents, and agents that revise erroneous knowledge. When I have some free time, which is very rare lately, I spend my time devoping applications for my Raspberry Pi. I also like playing the guitar, and bouzouki. I am also a video game enthousiast. I had spend many hours playing WoW in the past. When I am not playing online games I prefer playing Assassin's Creed.
