I am passionate about distributed data processing systems. Passionate enough, to spent few years of my life working on improving them during my PhD in computer science. My research characterizes their performance and behavior in resource constrained clusters and introduces resource allocation mechanisms for resource negotiators to meet deadlines and preserve fairness in such settings.

** After moving in the US, I realized many people have a hard time pronouncing correctly and remembering my Greek name and so I started using “Stratosphere” as a hint for them. Hence, strat0sphere became my Github ID and the name of this blog.
