I am currently a Ph.D. student in the Image, Optimization and Probabilities IOP team of the Institut de Mathématiques de Bordeaux , under the supervision of Charles Dossal and Jean-François Aujol.
Before that, i did my master studies in the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 and the École normale supérieure de Lyon. Even before that, i graduated from the Department of Mathematics of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece.
My research interests lie in convex analysis, optimization, algorithms, dynamical systems and other related topics. In particular my work focus on the different connections between differential systems and numerical algorithms for convex minimization problems, as also on different types of inertial gradient-descent type algorithms and their convergence properties.
