About Me

My name is Maria Rossi and I am from Athens, the lively capital of Greece! Since September 2014, I have been a PhD student in the Computer Science Laboratory of École Polytechnique (LIX) near Paris, France and a member of the Data Science and Mining group (DaSciM) under the supervision of Prof. Michalis Vazirgiannis and Prof. Benjamin Nguyen.

I obtained a Diploma in Engineering from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Patras in Greece and I carried out my Diploma Thesis at the VLSI lab under the supervision of Associate Prof. Vassilis Paliouras.

Afterwards I completed the Advanced Master of Artificial Intelligence at KU Leuven in Belgium and I carried out my MSc thesis at the LIIR lab under the supervision of Prof. Marie-Francine Moens.
