Mr. Georgios Rizos


Research Assistant / PhD Student



Georgios Rizos graduated in 2012 from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. He continued with postgraduate studies at the Imperial College of London, where he acquired his M.Sc. with distinction in Biomedical Engineering in 2013.

Between 2013 and 2017 he worked at the Information Technologies Institute of the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas as a research assistant, applying machine learning techniques on large scale data from social networks in the context of the FP7-REVEAL and H2020-STEP projects.
