I was born and raised in Nicosia, Cyprus. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Statistics from the University of Cyprus in 2012 and currently I am pursuing my Phd in Statistics at the Pennsylvania State University. I expect to graduate by May 2017. My PhD thesis is about testing separability of functional data and now I am working on the classification of not fully observed curves that updating over time. Traveling, hiking and cinema are my main hobbies and interests.

Research Interests

My research is concerned with functional data, that is, observations which are viewed as functions or curves defined over a domain T . Functional data are objects of infinite dimension and is a next step of multivariate data analysis. Existing methods used in traditional statistics such as regression, classification and clustering can be extended to functional inputs, making the field of functional data analysis very broad for research. My first two projects were about testing separability of functional data and my current project is on the classification of not fully observed curves that updating over time.
