Hello! I'm a third year PhD student at the University of Waterloo's Cheriton School of Computer Science, where I'm very fortunate to be a member of The Salon and be advised by Gautam Kamath. My interests broadly lie at the intersection of Theoretical Computer Science and Statistics, with a particular focus on Algorithmic Statistics, Machine Learning Theory and Differential Privacy. Before joining UWaterloo, I did my undergrad in ECE at NTUA, where I was a member of CoReLab and was advised by Dimitris Fotakis. [CV] [Last Updated: Sept. 2022]
Here's a tutorial about how to pronounce my name. If it's hard for you, I'm happy with people calling me Argy (RG). :)

Pronouns: I identify as a cisgender man, but I am fine with anything respectful.

I help coordinate the A&C group's seminar talks at Waterloo. If you're interested in giving a talk, feel free to e-mail me!
