Hey there! I am Stratis, 2nd-year PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems where I am very fortunate to be advised by Dr. Manuel Gomez Rodriguez. I am mainly interested in the design of data-driven models and algorithms to inform human-centric decision-making. That includes challenges related to explainability, transparency & strategic behavior, causality and fairness in algorithmic decision-making systems. More broadly, I am interested in machine learning, optimization, mechanism design and their real-world applications.
- I am a member of the MD4SG working group on “Discrimination and Equality in Algorithmic Decision-Making”.
- My academic roots can be found at the School of Electrical & Computer Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens. There, I had the chance to work with Prof. Dimitris Fotakis on data mining and recommendation aspects of the Orienteering Problem.
- My life roots can be found at the Greek island of Lesvos.
