Artemidos 6 & Epidavrou · Marousi, 15125, Greece · vergoulis@athenarc.com

I am a scientific associate at IMSI, "Athena" Research Center in Greece. In addition, I have been teaching courses in undergraduate and postgraduate level in academic institutions in Greece and Cyprus.


Research interests

I have been involved in several EU and national ICT projects related to big data, scientific data management, open science, and linked data. My research interests also involve bioinformatics, text mining & information retrieval for scientific publications, and research analytics.
