About Me
Evangelia Christakopoulou
Senior Software Engineer, Apple Media Products

My research interests lie in the intersection of fields of Data Mining and Machine Learning and their application to real world problems. My focus is on the exciting area of Recommender Systems, specifically on ways to improve the quality of top-N recommendation.

I recently graduated with a Ph.D. from the Computer Science department at the University of Minnesota, under the great supervision of Prof. George Karypis.

I come from the amazingly beautiful country of Greece.
