Christos Gkantsidis

I am a member of the Systems and Networking Group of Microsoft Research at Cambridge, UK. My current work focuses on various topics related to data analytics and cloud computing. In the past I have worked on content distribution, peer-to-peer networking, network coding (especially its applications for efficient content dissemination), network topologies, modelling of large-scale complex networks, and wireless networking. 

I received my Ph.D. from the College of Computing at Georgia Tech, Atlanta, GA, USA. Under the supervision of Prof. Milena Mihail, I worked on analyzing the algorithmic performance of complex communication networks. You can find a copy of my thesis here. While at Georgia Tech, I also collaborated with Prof. Mostafa Ammar, Ellen Zegura, and Constantinos Dovrolis. I did my undergrad at the Computer Engineering and Informatics Department of the University of Patras, Rio, Greece. I have also worked at Sprint Labs, CA, USA and in the Computer Technology Institute, Patras, Greece.
