My name is Christos Nasikas. I like building software, cryptography, security, blockchain, and privacy. I hold a Master’s Degree in Theoretical Computer Science from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.

In the past years I worked as a self-employed Full Stack Web Developer. Throughout a period of over three years I collaborated with numerous companies and individuals (Roleplay, MoY Studio, Lamb and Lamp, MDesigners), using web technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Node.js, and PHP within frameworks of JQuery, React, Redux, Backbone.js, and WordPress.

Later on, I was recruited as a Software Engineer and Researcher by the Athena Research Information Center. There I designed and developed a distributed privacy preserving data analytics platform. For the needs of the project, I build various distributed scalable components using Node.js and designed communication protocols as state machines. I also designed and developed a RESTful API using Node.js and Express, developed a web app using React and Redux, and build a data adaptive processing module using Python.

Currently, I am working as a Software Engineer at Elastic.
