About Me

I am lecturer at the department of applied mathematics, where I am part of the Discrete Mathematics and Mathematical Programming group.

After finishing my B.Sc. in Mathematics in 2016 at the University of Patras, Greece, I moved to the US for my graduate studies. I completed my Ph.D. degree in Mathematics at the University of Georgia in 2021, under the direction of Professor Dino Lorenzini. After that, I was a postdoctoral researcher first at the Steklov Mathematical Institute in Moscow and then at Charles University in Prague. 


I am interested in various problems in Algebraic Geometry, Arithmetic Geometry, and (Algebraic) Number Theory.

So far I have worked on problems related to reduction of algebraic curves and abelian varieties, on consequences of the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture, on universal quadratic forms over number fields, as well as on integer dynamics.
