Research project: Vide-omics: A Darwinian Approach to Video Analysis


The aim of this project is to develop and apply a novel strategy for video analysis where videos are treated as mutating images. Treating images from the bioinformatics perspective allows the integration of genetics concepts as well as the bioinformatics algorithms in video processing.


I received the M. Eng degree in production & management engineering from Democritus University of Thrace, Xanthi, Greece, in 2013. Since 2014, I have been pursuing a PhD degree in computer science at Kingston University.
