About

Overview

I am a Lecturer at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at City, University of London.

Prior to my current appointment, I was Postdoctoral Researcher in the Engineering Department and a Lecturer at Christ Church College at University of Oxford. Previously, I worked at the Smart Grid & Technology Department in Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) - a unit of Exelon Corp. (Chicago, Illinois, U.S.) that provides service to approximately 3.8 million customers.

I was awarded a Ph.D. and a M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2014 and 2011, respectively. I received my undergraduate degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from National Technical University of Athens, Greece in 2009.

My research lies on the interface of power and energy systems, decision and control, economics and energy policy.
