Research

Overall, my research focus on applying deep learning and data science to understanding and countering cybersafety issues. My current research interests lie in the fields of social networks analysis, cybersafety, fake news, deep learning, data analysis, and authentication security. My research has been published at top-tier conferences such as ICWSM and ACM CSCW. My co-authors and I have received honorable mention award at ICWSM 2020 (link).

I also have extensive experience in EU-funded projects. Specifically, as a Research Fellow at Cyprus University of Technology, I had the technical lead of the ReCRED project (Horizon 2020 Innovation Action - 2014) and I also have also participated as a researcher in several other projects like the ENCASE project (Horizon 2020 Marie Curie RISE - 2015), the INCOGNITO project (Horizon 2020 Marie Curie RISE - 2020), and the SECONDO project (Horizon 2020 Marie Curie RISE - 2020).
