Dr. Spyros


My name is Spyros Zoupanos and currently I am a software engineer and scientific collaborator at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).

In the past, I managed and implemented the single sign-on project at Max-Planck-Institut für Physik, I was a senior developer at Quartet Financial Systems and a post-doctoral fellow at Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik. I obtained my PhD degree from INRIA Saclay and Université Paris-Sud, working under the supervision of Serge Abiteboul and Ioana Manolescu.

I obtained my bachelor's and master's degrees from the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications of the University of Athens. My supervisors were Alex Delis and Yannis Ioannidis.
