George Kontogeorgiou


I am a third-year PhD student supervised by Agelos Georgakopoulos.

Academic Background

I obtained my BSc in Mathematics from the University of Athens in 2019. My (unofficial) advisor was Dimitrios M. Thilikos. Here is my CV.

Research Interests

I am mainly interested in combinatorics and graph theory, especially structural and topological graph theory.


During my time in Warwick, I have been a TA for the following classes: Combinatorics, Discrete Mathematics and its Applications I & II, Graph Theory. I have compiled a collection of standard problems aimed at students who are taking their first class in discrete mathematics.

I have also delivered preparatory lectures for mathematical competitions, both in Athens and in Warwick. I was the deputy leader of the University of Warwick team for IMC 2020 and IMC 2021.
