Zoe Kotti

Data Scientist, PhD Candidate @Athens University of Economics and Business


I’m a Data Scientist with extensive experience in AI applications in software engineering and recommender systems. I was previously a Research Engineer at Delivery Hero working on machine-learning-based recommender systems and their performance analytics.

I’m also a PhD Candidate and Associate Researcher at the Business Analytics Laboratory, established at the Department of Management Science and Technology, Athens University of Economics and Business, Greece. My doctorate has been granted a scholarship award from the Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation.

My research interests include machine learning, recommender systems, and software engineering.
