Formerly he was an adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Ioannina, Dept. of Computer Science & Engineering, an adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Western Macedonia, Dept. Engineering Informatics and Telecommunications, a tenured Lecturer at the University of Manchester, Schools of Computer Science and Informatics, as well as UMIST, Department of Computation and an external moderator for the Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham Business School .


He holds a DEng(Hons) in Computer Engineering and Informatics (5 year studies) from the Department of Computer Engineering & Informatics at the University of Patras, and a BSc(Hons) in Law (4 year studies) from the Department of Law at the Democritus University of Thrace, in Greece. He also holds an MPhil in Computation from UMIST and a PhD in Informatics from the University of Manchester, U.K.


His focal research area is data mining, decision support, software engineering and smart cities, and his aim is to advance the use of data mining in domains such as medicine, programming languages and novel types of heterogeneous data. His research interests are in the areas of data mining and analytics, and software management, where he has published widely. His research objectives include bridging the gap between theories and applications of data mining, as well as establishing novel ways of retrieving information from data, text, social media and source code.


He published over 100 papers in international refereed journals and conferences, focusing on data mining algorithms, such as clustering, classification and association rules, and data mining applications in domains, such as software engineering, medicine, biology, sports analytics, social media, energy and smart cities. His work has been published in journals including Int’l Journal of Neural Systems, WIREs Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery, Integrated Computer-Aided Engineering, Multimedia Tools and Applications, Information Systems, Methods of Information in Medicine, Advances in Data Analysis and Classification, Software Quality Journal, Information Systems Frontiers, Energies, Sustainable Computing: Informatics and Systems, Computing, Data & Knowledge Engineering, Int'l Journal of Data Mining and Bioinformatics, Applied Artificial Intelligence, and international referred conferences such as PVLDB, IEEE ICTAI, IEEE COMPSAC, IEEE WETICE, IEEE SMC, KSEM, IEEE ITAB, IEEE APSEC, IEEE IWPC, CSMR and IDEAL.
