Hello! Welcome to my site!

My name is Maria Karpathiotaki and I'm currently working as a Software Engineer at IBM Software Lab in Dublin. I am part of the BigSQL Development team.

Background

I obtained a Diploma in Engineering from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) of the University of Patras, and I carried out my Diploma Thesis at the ITLab Human Computer Interaction Group (HCI). The topic of my Diploma Thesis was the Design and Development of the Location-Sensitive Mobile Game Benaki MuseumScrabble (BMS).

Afterwards, I completed the MSc "Advanced Information Systems" offered by the Department of Informatics & Telecommunications (DIT) of the National Kapodistrian University of Athens (UoA). In my Master Thesis, I focused on Semantic Search and Discovery for Earth Observation Products using Ontology Services.

In parallel with my MSc studies, I worked as a research assistant at the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens (UoA), focusing on topics related with Semantic Web. I was also a member of the Management of Data, Information & Knowledge Group (MaDgiK).

For an updated CV, please contact me via email.
