Hi, I am Marios.

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Information Management Systems Institute (IMSI) of Athena Research Center.

As part of my PhD thesis ((link to technical report)), I have been working on query optimization, storage and indexing, in RDF and SPARQL. I am currently involved in Big Data Management projects with Ericsson S.A. and Intracom-Telecom S.A., as well as a number of domestic and european research projects. I spent the summer of 2018 in IBM Research Dublin, working on semantic recommenders and neural embedding models over health data.

At the moment, I am researching detection of implicit graph schemas and its applications on storage, querying and visualization.

I received my BEng in Electrical and Computer Engineering from NTUA (top 10%). I hold an MSc in Artificial Intelligence (distinction, top 5%) from the University of Edinburgh and a MBA degree from NTUA and the University of Piraeus (top 5%).

My research interests lie in the following areas:

Reviewer: TKDE, IEEE Access, Journal of Web Semantics, SNAM, IJSWIS, SEMANTiCS, Information Systems Frontiers, CIKM (External), Semantic Web Journal (External), JeDEM
