I am a fifth year PhD student in the physics department at Georgia Tech. I received my undergraduate physics degree in 2009 and a masters degree in computational physics in 2011 from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. In 2012 I moved to Atlanta where I entered the Physics graduate program at the Georgia Institute of Technology. After a year of master studies in physics I started working towards my PhD partly as a member of the Computational Astrophysics group in the Center for Relativistic Astrophysics at Georgia Tech, under the supervision of Professor Laguna and partly as a member of the Theoretical Astrophysics Group of Tuebingen University in Germany, under the supervision of Professor Kokkotas. The focus of my research is the computational study of rapidly rotating neutron stars as sources of gravitational waves.
