I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Engineering and Digital Arts, University of Kent. Before joining Kent I was a Senior Research Associate at the University of Cambridge, a Research Associate at Lancaster University, and a Visiting Researcher at Sony Electronics Distributed Systems Lab. I received my PhD in Computer Science, from Lancaster University, UK. I hold an MSc (Distributed Systems) from Lancaster University and a BSc (Computer Engineering) from the University of Patras, Greece.
My main research interest lies in the general area of Ubiquitous Computing, with particular emphasis on the challenges of building multi-sensory computational systems to understand real-world human behaviour. My work involves the development of techniques to detect and model human activities using wearable or mobile sensing, IoT (Internet of Things) technologies, and passively captured human activity datasets.
My work has been funded by EPSRC, Innovate UK, EU Regional Development, the University of Kent, and a range of industrial partners. I have published more than 60 peer-reviewed papers, including papers that received the best-paper award at ACM Ubicomp 2014 and IEEE PerCom 2013.
I have served as member of technical program committees for a number of conferences, including IEEE PerCom, ACM Ubicomp, ACM MobiSys, ACM HotMobile. I was one of the co-founders and chair of the WristSense Workshop series and been a member of the organising committees of Ubicomp, MobiSys, HotMobile, PerCom.
