Alexandros Karakasidis, born in Komotini, Greece, received his BSc degree in Computer Science from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Ioannina, Greece in 2002 and his MSc also in Computer Science with specialization in Information Systems from the same department in 2005. He received his PhD degree in Computer Science from the School of Science and Technology at the Hellenic Open University, Greece in 2015. His research interests lie in the area of data management and especially in approximate data matching, privacy and data quality. He has worked at the University of Ioannina and the Hellenic Ministry of Education Research and Religious Affairs. Currently, he is a Marie Curie research fellow of the iSocial FP7 program at the Laboratory of Internet Computing, Department of Computer Science, University of Cyprus.
