I am the as. director of NTUA’s Computer Center. I am a network and systems administrator. I design and implement Cloud Computing services on top of FOSS operating systems and applications. I am a Linux and Python enthusiast. I try to keep an open mind, but no so open that my brains fall out. I can tie my shoelaces really fast. My daily life as a devoted to duty administrator, involves a lot of responsibilities and team work.

I obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science from NTUA’s ECE Department in 2007. I studied Computational Geometry and specifically Art Gallery Problems (the fact that my wife is a painter is completely irrelevant). Since then I worked as a short term assistant professor in NUA’s Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, and as a short term lecturer in AUEB’s Department of Informatics. I instructed Computational Geometry, Discrete Mathematics and Theory of Computation classes.

I have been around in NTUA since 1994. I guess that makes me old. I was an active member of ΕρΓΑ and CORELAB. In a previous life I have been a geologist (at least as an undergraduate in NUA).

is it Fragoudakis or Fragkoudakis?

My name in Greek is Χριστόδουλος Φραγκουδάκης. The diphthong γκ in Φραγκουδάκης sounds in Greek like the letter g in almost every English word that I know. But the Greek authorities decided to make an one to one correspondence from the Greek alphabet to the English one. So the Greek letter γ corresponds to g while κ corresponds to k and this explains the ugly and unpronounceable Fragkoudakis on my ID card.
