Maria Apostolaki

I am a third year PhD student, advised by Prof. Laurent Vanbever. My research focuses on Internet routing and its implications on performance and security. Next summer, I will work with Monia Ghobadi at Microsoft Research. In summer 2017, I worked on analyzing data of an internal monitoring platform at Google, Mountain View.

Prior to joining ETH, I earned my diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens, Greece.
