About

I was born and raised in Athens, Greece where I still live! I have been really into Computer Science since forever, so after completing my first degree on Management and a bit of Computer Science, I continued drifting towards Computer Science a bit more during my MSc studies (Geographical Information Systems) and a bit more during my PhD studies (Metadata Quality in Learning Repositories).

Nowadays I work on my passion which is metadata but I am also reading about and practising Product Development through approaches like the Business Model Canvas and Lean Canvas.

Generally speaking I am easily distracted, I love new challenges and I like to work on diverse and unknown things. Therefore I like experimenting and I consider myself to be kind of creative and adaptable in general, not to mention modest! ;-)
