### Welcome

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.
