I currently conduct research on how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can benefit future electricity systems. Electrification if combined with power generation solely from renewable power sources can be of a major impact in the try to stop climate change. However, renewable generation comes at the cost of increasing volatility which must be managed by current and future electricity markets intelligently. My research interests focus on multi-agent systems, game-theory and learning.
Based on the results of my master thesis, presented at GECCO 2015:ResearchGate
The tool can load an arbitrary electricity standard load profile from a csv file, it can then generate synthetic data in any scale, for the discrete, or continuous cases.
I was born in Athens, in October 1988. I am from Evia, a beautiful island in the middle part of Greece.
I graduated from Technical University of Crete in Greece with a 5-year diploma in Electronic and Computer Engineering. In 2012 I completed my diploma thesis in the subject of multi-agent behavior and strategy coordination for the RoboCup Simulation League.
I received my Masters of Science degree after completing a two-years master studies at University of Amsterdam in the subject of artificial Intelligence in December 2014. During my master studies I worked as a teaching assistant at University of Amsterdam, and as an intern at VicarVision, a computer vision company located in Amsterdam. I was also a member of Dutch Nao Team of University of Amsterdam, participating in two major RoboCup competitions.
Third place in the Iran Open 2013
My master thesis, "Evolution of Soft-Robots by Novelty Search", was accepted for publication at GECCO 2015 in Madrid. This work was a cooperation between University of Amsterdam and the Advanced Concepts Team at the European Space Agency, where I worked for three months as an intern.
Since February 2015 I hold a PhD candidate position at the Intelligent Systems Group at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) in Amsterdam, working on Intelligent solutions for future electricity networks.
