Dr. Charilaos Efthymiou joins the department as a new Assistant Professor
The Department is welcoming our new Assistant Professor Dr. Charilaos Efthymiou, who will be associated with the Division of Theory and Foundations (FoCS) and the Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications (DIMAP).
Before joining us, Charilaos held research positions in various universities including Goethe University of Frankfurt, Germany, as a DFG Fellow, College of Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology, USA, and School of Informatics a the University of Edinburgh, UK. This is not his first time at the University of Warwick, he has been a post-doc researcher at DIMAP (2010-2012). Charilaos completed his PhD at the University of Patras, Greece, in 2009.
His research is in the intersection of theory of algorithms, discrete mathematics and statistical physics. Specifically, he studies how powerful notions from statistical physics, e.g., phase transitions, affect the performance of algorithms for various problems in computer science and mathematics.
