Ioannis Tzortzis is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Cyprus. Ioannis_TzortzisHe received the Diploma degree in Electrical Engineering from the Higher Technical Institute, Cyprus, in 2003 and his BSc degree in Electrical Engineering and Informatics from Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary, in 2007.  He completed his MSc studies and PhD studies in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Cyprus in 2009 and 2015, respectively. Between January 2015 and January 2016, he worked as a research scientist at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Cyprus. His responsibilities involve primarily conducting research, participating in proposal writing, teaching and supervising undergraduate students. (Read more….)

Throughout his academic studies, he had the opportunity to contact research in a broad range of problems and get involved in numerous interdisciplinary projects, mainly in the areas of control theory and communications. In brief, his research interests can be categorized into: (i) stochastic dynamical decision and control systems, (ii) control and optimization subject to ambiguity, (iii) mini-max dynamic games, (iv) dynamic programming and algorithms, (v) model order reduction, (vi) communications and (vii) Markov decision processes.
