Research Activities


The research focus of S. Kontogiannis is on the Foundations of Computer Science. He is interested in the design and analysis of algorithms for fundamental problems in networks, parallel and distributed systems, combinatorial optimization, approximation algorithms, online algorithms, and their applications to real-life problems emerging in practice.

He is working on problems related to: the design, maintenance, and management of communication and transportation networks exploiting local / limited knowledge; the robustness of computations in parallel and distributed computing systems; the consequences of antagonistic (selfish) behavior in large scale computing and communication networks.


Areas of Interest

Theoretical computer science, algorithmic game theory, parallel and distributed computing, design and analysis of algorithms, combinatorial optimization.
