I am a research scientist at Discover Financial Services. Previously, I held various academic positions: Assistant Adjunct Professor at UCLA Mathematics Department (2016-2019), Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology at UMass Amherst (2015-2016), Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at UMass Amherst (2012-2015). During my Ph.D. I was fortunate to work as a researcher at the IACM-FORTH in Crete, Greece.
