I am a PhD candidate at Washington University in St. Louis, where I am supervised by Prof. William Yeoh. Prior to this, I received a MSc. in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Southampton (UK), supervised by Prof. Long Tran-Thanh, a MSc. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Glasgow (UK), supervised by Prof. Radostin Simitev, and finally a BSc. from the University of the Aegean (GR), supervised by Prof. Nikolaos Kavallaris.

Currently, my research revolves around eXplainable AI for complex decision-manking problems. In particular, I am investigating the creation of a logical account that could generate personalized and persuasive explanations for specific tasks, such as classical planning, in a dialogical fashion between an agent and a human user, much like in the romanticized illustration depicted to the right.
