Thodoris Lykouris

I am a fourth year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science department of Cornell University, where I am advised by Éva Tardos. Prior to that, I received my Diploma from National Technical University of Athens where I worked under the supervision of Dimitris Fotakis.

My research interests lie at the intersection of the areas of Algorithmic Game Theory, Learning Theory, Optimization, and Information Networks. More specifically, I am interested in settings where strategic entities are interacting with each other. My research focuses on analyzing the performance of such systems and designing incentive schemes in order to improve it.
