Education: Konstantinos Makris obtained his Diploma from the National Technical University of Athens (Greece) in 2002 and his PhD in Theoretical Photonics from the School of Optics and Photonics (CREOL-FCPE) at the University of Central Florida, Orlando (USA) in 2008.
Career: From 2008 until 2010 he was a postdoctoral researcher at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. During 2011 he was Lecturer at Institute for Theoretical Physics of Vienna University of Technology (TU-Wien), Austria. From 2012 until 2015 he was a Marie Curie International Outgoing fellow (MC-IOF) between Princeton University, USA and TU-Wien, Austria. He was elected Assistant Professor at the Department in 2017.
Interests: Methods and analogies related to condensed matter physics and photonics, with emphasis in four different areas: nonlinear optics in lattices, non-hermitian photonics and parity-time (PT)-symmetry, nanophotonics, and semiclassical laser physics for complex structures.
