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.
