Michail Mylonakis

Data Scientist, Ph.D.


I am from Chania in Greece. I took my diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). I hold also a Master in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich). I completed my doctoral thesis at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm on June 2023, under the supervision of Prof. Mikael Skoglund. The thesis was in the area of Shannon's Information theory. I recently attended the 11-week online program Business Analytics: Decision-Making Using Data of University of Cambridge.

I have a strong background in Probability, Statistics and Data Analysis. I have also a good knowledge of some modern tools of data science, e.g., Python, SQL, R, Matlab. My current interests are summarized as following:

  • the application of the methods of Data Analytics for designing statistical experiments and analysing data in different fields,

  • the systematic investigation of how Data Analytics can contribute to effective Decision-Making,

  • the exploration of the limits of the predictive power of Big Data, by combining the depth of the insights that mathematics gives with the opportunities that the modern tools of data science provide.

For more details about my doctoral thesis and my interests, see Pages.

In my free time, I love travelling and participating in trail running races. Moreover, I enjoy reading and having discussions about philosophy. My favourite authors, Henri Bergson and Gilles Deleuze have not stopped to inspire me during the years. Awaiting also for the 1904–1905 lectures of Henri Bergson, dedicated to the topic of freedom which will be published for the first time in English, (Bloomsbury, 30 May 2024).
