My research journey started a long time ago at the Civil Engineering Department of the University of Patras, where I obtained my Diploma degree in Civil Engineering in 2012. Then, in 2014, my M.Sc. degree in “Water Resources and Environment” followed. Moreover, my journey went on at the Chair for Computational Analysis of Technical Systems (CATS) at RWTH Aachen University (Germany), where I pursued my Ph.D. studies. My supervisor was Prof. Marek Behr. Throughout my Ph.D. studies, I worked on simplex space-time meshes in two-phase flow simulations.

I am honored to continue my research journey as a postdoctoral fellow at the PECOS center at the Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Science. My primary research areas include research on finite element methods, implementing efficient numerical schemes, and applying uncertainty quantification methods related to the simulation of ICP torches executed on large-scale HPC systems.

In my free time, I enjoy painting with watercolors, acrylic colors and oil sticks, and cooking.
