I am looking for a PostDoc on Quantum Optimization! See here!

My name is Anastasios Kyrillidis (Αναστάσιος Κυριλλίδης), but most people call me by the nickname ‘Tasos’ (‘Τάσος’). Currently, I’m a Noah Harding Assistant Professor at the Computer Science department at Rice University.

Prior to that, I was a Goldstine PostDoctoral Fellow at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center (NY), and a Simons Foundation PostDoc member at the University of Texas at Austin. I finished my PhD at the CS Department of EPFL (Switzerland).

I’m recipient of a NSF CAREER award, an Amazon Research Award (ARA), a Microsoft Research Award, and I’m closely collaborating with Intel.
