about

My personal research focuses on modeling human speech production based on direct observations of the vocal-tract dynamic configuration, with a view to helping assess speech disorders, decode the brain, and enhance speech technologies like recognition and synthesis. On top of it, I have a key coordinating role in the Speech Production and Articulation kNowledge (SPAN) group, an interdisciplinary team bringing together engineers and linguists.

I received all my academic degrees in Thessaloniki, Greece: Diploma/MEng in Electrical and Computer Engineering (1999, Aristotle University); MSc in Information Systems (2002, University of Macedonia); PhD in Applied Informatics (2007, University of Macedonia). Next, I held postdoctoral research positions in France, at LORIA (2007-2011) and TELECOM ParisTech (2011-2012). I joined USC in 2012, initially as a research associate.

Among other things, I have translated from English to Greek a book on mathematical finance, published a few poems, and sung for a little-known alternative rock band.
