Angelos Lazaris

Hi! My name is Angelos (or Aggelos) Lazaris. I received my Diploma and my M.Sc. in Electronic and Computer Engineering (ECE) from the Technical University of Crete, Greece, and my Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California. I have been working in the industry as a data scientist in the area of fraud detection and prevention in an effort to improve the traffic quality in the advertising ecosystem. In this website, you can find information related to my academic research that lies in the intersection of machine learning and computer networks.
Disclaimer: The information in this website is NOT related to my proprietary work in the industry.
