Hi! I’m George
❝What we know and what we don’t is one click away❞
Born and raised in Greece, I started studying Electrical Engineering in my hometown university. Not being really interested in this subject, I started looking for other options until I came across École 42, back in 2014. I applied and spent the better part of my summer coding 24/7 in Paris. It was a life-changing experience both since it was my first contact with programming and because I got to work with over 100 different people on various smaller or bigger projects, all while having to overcome communication problems as I was not properly speaking French at the time.
When this was over I knew I couldn’t carry on doing Electrical Engineering because, like 42‘s motto says, I felt that I was #born2code. I spent the next year learning and doing small projects on various topics including Android development, security and object-oriented design. I applied and got into EPFL where I still am, currently at the 3rd year of my Computer Science Bachelor.
At the moment, I am learning about data analysis, machine learning and neural networks as they offer me the possibility to combine my mathematical background with programming to solve problems that I actually find very interesting. Although I’m focused on data science, I’m really open to taking up fresh challenges, if they allow me to learn something new.
When I’m not working, you’ll probably find me either cooking, playing soccer or binge-watching some superhero series.
