Education & Research Experience:

I completed my undergraduate studies in the Department of Informatics (Computer Science and Telecommunications) of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, located in my hometown of Athens, Greece. I was a member of the founding class of that department.

In 1991, I joined the Ph.D. program of the Department of Computer Science of SUNY at Stony Brook, U.S.A. from which I obtained my M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in 1994 and 1996, respectively.

My Ph.D. thesis titled:

The SLG-WAM: A Search Efficient Engine for Well-Founded Evaluation of Normal Logic Programs

was done under the supervision of my advisor David S. Warren.

Starting September 1996, I returned to Europe and joined as a visiting research scientist the Declarative Languages and Artificial Intelligence Group of the Department of Computer Science of the Catholic University of Leuven in Leuven, Belgium. I stayed for 2.5 years there working mainly with Bart Demoen and I absolutely enjoyed every minute of it (besides Bart, the Belgian beers helped in this a bit too, I suppose :-).

Since March 1999, I am an associate professor (Docent, Senior Lecturer) in the Department of Information Technology (Computing Science Division) of Uppsala University in Uppsala, Sweden.

Ever since I came to Uppsala, I have been leading the research conducted in the context of the HiPE (High Performance Erlang) project and associated group.

During the period November 2000 – June 2002, I was the head of the Computer Science Division. Since the beginning of 2004, I have been the director of the ASTEC (Advanced Software TEChnology) competence center.
