I have received the Diploma of Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. I hold a M.Sc. degree in Communication Engineering from the Microwaves and Communication Systems group of the University of Manchester, UK and a Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering from the Antennas and Electromagnetics Group of the Queen Mary, University of London, UK. After completion of my PhD studies , I accepted a Postdoctoral Fellowship position in the University of Texas at Austin, USA at the Metamaterials and Plasmonics Research Laboratory. Next, I worked as a Postdoctoral Associate in the Center for Metamaterials and Integrated Plasmonics at Pratt School of Engineering, Duke University, USA. Currently, I am an Associate Professor at University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

My main research interests include computational electromagnetics, linear and nonlinear plasmonics, numerical and analytical modeling of metamaterials and their applications, novel antenna design, transformation optics, active metamaterials, thermal emission from plasmonic structures, graphene nanophotonics, new energy harvesting devices and acoustic metamaterials. I have received several travel and research awards, such as ONR YIP Award, Layman Award, UNL College of Engineering Edgerton Innovation Award, Nebraska NSF EPSCoR's FIRST Award, URSI Early Career/Young Scientist Award, NRL Summer Faculty Research Fellowship, Junior Researcher Award of the 2013 Raj Mittra Travel Grant, EPSRC Research Scholarship, Royal Academy of Engineering international travel grant and twice the Marie Curie Actions Grant to attend the European School of Antennas. I have given several invited talks and seminars to different conferences and universities. I am a senior member of IEEE, SPIE, and Optica (former Optical Society of America) and a member of IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society, American Physical Society and URSI.
