Hi stranger! I'm

George Karabassis

Thank you for stopping by!

Get to know me!!

I'm a Greek student, currently studying Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Edinburgh.

I was born in London, hence also holding a British Citizenship, from Greek parents. At 4, we moved to Greece to be closer with my grandparents and I grew up in the south of Athens. At 16, me and my parents moved to Kent and I completed my higher education (A Levels), where I eventually moved to Edinburgh to study Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence.

During my study, I explored multiple things, including being part of multiple student societies, such as HypEd, a student lead project based at the University of Edinburgh with aim to create the first Hyperloop transportation system in the UK, volunteered as a student representative in my 2nd year and being accepted to J.P. Morgan Spring week programme full of activities and work shadowing.

While not studying, I enjoy working on cool ideas I come up with. For instance, I created the most detailed vaccine & Covid-19 tracking website in May 2020, which received more than 30 Million visits which was also picked up by the news. I also found myself with some great people when I participated in a Coding & Innovation type of competition (Hackathon) in summer 2020. Together me and my team won and got recognized by Google.

My strongest passion is converting cool ideas into a reality with the aim to help people make their lives better and easier. I am always looking forward to my next challenge!

Say hi, if you love my journey and what I'm doing!

Working on numerus projects, allowed me to expand my horizons and discover new areas which I never thought I would enjoy. I participated in many team projects, with purpose to develop my communication and team-working skills, but also solo projects, with goal to improve my skills.


Personal work

What do I do in my spare time? I love doing individual work to improve my skills in a particular area.


I enjoy creating artwork and animations, mainly when when it comes to video game design and creating designs of how a project may roughly look like at the end of its production. Click here to see my designs!

I help you!

Oh, I also enjoy sharing my knowledge to others as helping each other is the only way humanity moves forward. I sometimes answer your questions on Quora.
