Dimitrios Athanasakis, machine learning researcher


I’m a machine learning researcher with more than 15 years of experience in the broader field. I completed my EngD under the supervision of Professors John Shawe-Taylor and Delmiro Fernandez-Reyes and I’ve published in the domains of computational biology, medicine, and privacy-preserving machine learning. My professional experience spans a number of settings including security, biotechnology, and finance. You might find some of my research interesting, or perhaps you’d like to have a look at my CV.
