I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Helsinki. I lead the Algorithmic Data Science research group.

Research Interests
Data management for machine learning (ML), optimization of ML pipelines, ML model management and materialization, learned and workload-aware indexing, graph processing.

Short Bio Before Helsinki, I taught at INSA Lyon for one semester (2017) and spent four years (2013-2017) as a postdoctoral researcher at Aalto University. I completed my doctoral studies at the University of Toronto (2013) and diploma of engineering at the National Technical University of Athens (2006). Awards: Best paper award at the ACM Web Conference 2022 and Springer Discovery Science 2020. Best student paper award at ACM WSDM 2016 and Web Science 2017.
