I will be starting as an assistant professor of CS at Rice University in Fall 2018.

My name is Anastasios Kyrillidis (Αναστάσιος Κυριλλίδης), but most people call me by the nickname ‘Tasos’ (‘Τάσος’). Currently, I’m a Goldstine Fellow at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center (NY). Prior to that, I was a Simons Foundation PostDoc member of the Wireless Networking & Communications Group (WNCG) at the University of Texas at Austin, working with Constantine Caramanis, Alex Dimakis and Sujay Sanghavi. I finished my PhD at the CS Department of EPFL (Swtizerland), under the supervision of Volkan Cevher.

My research interests include (but are not limited to) convex and non-convex analysis and optimization, data analysis and machine learning.
