Research Experience

10/2007 –Today: Researcher, NCSR Demokritos.

Member of the KM3NeT collaboration

· Feasibility studies for different detector layouts in order to increase the sensitivity to neutrino sources.

· Monte Carlo simulations needed for studying the background coming from atmospheric muons and for investigating the influence of this background to the signal muons from cosmic neutrinos as a function of the depth at which the detector is deployed.

· Study of the analysis goals for the Technical Design Report. The aim of this work was to propose a common set of fundamental quantities which could be studied for every detector design and give their definition, in order to facilitate the comparisons of the results of the different working groups referring to different detector layouts.

10/2005 -12/2006: Research associate, National Technical University of Athens.

Member of the ATLAS experiment at LHC.

Participated at the control of the muon chambers BIS-MDT which were made in Greece, at the software development for the control of the MDT temperature sensors and installed the ATLAS software in N.T.U.A.

11/1998 -12/2006: Research associate, Max Plank Institute, Munich.

Member of the H1 experiment at HERA

· Responsible for the level 2 neural network trigger of the experiment. This comprises the coordination of the offline analysis and the simulation of this trigger and the investigation of the efficiency of a neural network algorithm for open charm events at the second level trigger.

· Study of open charm production in deep inelastic scattering (DIS) and in particular performed the measurement of the charm contribution to the proton structure function F2cc and conducted the study of dijets with charm in DIS.

· Participated in the study of the production of K0 mesons and Λ baryons in deep inelastic scattering events.

· Participated in the study of the production of charm events in DIS using the semileptonic charm quark decays to electrons.
