She got her first degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in October 1998. 

 She has chaired the technical program committee of the premier conferences in her field (ACM SIGCOMM, ACM IMC, ACM CONEXT, ACM MOBIHOC, IEEE SECON), authored more than 85 peer reviewed papers, authored a book on the design and management of large-scale IP networks through Cambridge University Press, has 1 pending and 5 awarded patents, and has received the best paper awards at ACM Mobicom 2009, ACM IMC 2013, and ACM CoNEXT 2013. She has held an adjunct faculty position in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University from 2007 until 2011, and in 2008 she received the rising star award of the computer networking community of ACM (ACM SIGCOMM).  She is the editor of ACM Computer Communications Review since 2013, and is standing in the ACM Publication Board Digital Library committee. She has participated as an expert in panels for the Federal Commission of Communications, the National Telecommunications and Information Agency, and the National Science Foundation of the U.S.A, as well as the Association of Computing Machinery. In 2015, she was awarded the title of ACM Distinguished Scientist.

Her work has been cited more than 7200 times, according to google scholar, and is often associated with significant progress in the areas of network traffic classification, forecasting of network traffic, self-organizing wireless local area networks, and centralized wireless local area networks.
