Contact me

Hi, I'm Nontas!

Currently I am working as a Software Design Engineer for ASML Netherlands. I belong to the Litho Systems and Software Architecture group and my main interests are in Model-Driven Software Engineering, Testing, and Simulation.

Before joining ASML, I attended a two-year post-master program, called Software Technology PDEng, at the Eindhoven University of Technology. During this program, I worked on projects for major industries of the Netherlands, like Océ-Canon, ASML, and Philips.

I received my diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Patras (Greece) in 2015. During my studies I specialized in Digital Signal and Image Processing.

As a student, I was a Microsoft Student Partner for several years. During this time, I led and co-founded the first and biggest offline student community of Microsoft in Greece (called StudentGuru Patras).

From 2012 until 2015, I was an external partner of Greek Yellow Pages S.A. (a company that offers the most complete business directory in Greece), where I worked on the development of their mobile app for Windows devices.
