I am a Ph.D. candidate at KAUST University - Physical Science and Engineering division at CES (Computational Earthquake Seismology) research group, under the suprivision of Professor Martin P. Mai and O. Zielke. I am currently working on a Physics-based Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Assessment by conducting earthquake multi-cycle simulations. I have graduated from faculty of Science, majored in Seismology at National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.
My M.Sc. Thesis was specialized on Tsallis Entropy via the NoN-Extensive Statistical Mechanics approach, by analyzing Coda Waves increments during the Santorini's unrest Period of 2011~2012.
Professor Filippos Vallianatos (Supervisor).
In the last 6 years I've worked as a research associate at the National Observatory of Athens, involving in a variety of scientific projects,
« Development of innovative techniques for recording precursor of earthquake events in the Peloponnese area - RADONS »,
« Geophysical survey of Seismic Cross hole tomography for METRO SA »,
« HELPOS-Greek Lithosphere Observation System »,
« Study of seismicity and seismic hazard in the western Corinth gulf for Oil Company of Greece. »,
« ARIS – National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. Collaboration with Motor Oil Company »
My work is specialized on software development, Non-Extensive Statistical Mechanics, EarthQuake hypocenter solutions using local velocity models, automatic picking on P & S phases, seismicity analysis (spatial and temporal characteristics) and statistical process of seismic catalogues.

My M.Sc. Thesis 'Non-Extensive statistical physics properties of seismic coda waves recorded during the Santorini unrest period 2011-2012' can be found here . My B.Sc. thesis can be found here .
I have developed a variety of Scientific analysis programs using Matlab.
I am interested in computational analysis ,having knowledge of a variety programming languages (PC & Server Side) such as Matlab , C++ , Java (Developer of Android Apps) Google Play Porfile here , PHP , SQL , HTML , JavaScript , jQuery , JSON , xml & rss , css and google Maps Api.

My hobbies are Astronomy & backyard astrophotography , playing guitar(classic and electric) and cycling.
