Associate Professor. Undergraduate studies at the University of Cyprus, Cyprus (B.Sc. in Mathematics, 1998). Graduate studies at the University of Connecticut, USA (M.Sc., 2002; Ph.D., 2003, both in Computer Science and Engineering). Before joining the University of Cyprus in 2004, he worked as a Teaching and Research Assistant at the University of Connecticut, USA (1998-2003). His research interests span the Theory and Practice of Fault-tolerant Distributed and Parallel Computing with a focus on Algorithms and Complexity. He has published more than 90 articles in journals and conference proceedings in his area of study and he has coauthored two books on Robust Distributed Cooperative Computing. He served on several Program Committees of conferences in Distributed and Parallel Computing and on the Steering Committees of the International Symposium on Distributed Computing-DISC (2008-2010, 2010-2012) and the ACM Symposium on the Principles of Distributed Computing-PODC (2014-2015). In 2015 he served as the General Chair of PODC 2015, in 2017 he served as the Track Program Committee co-Chair (Stabilizing Systems: Theory and Practice Track) of SSS 2017, and in 2018 he served as the General co-Chair and PC co-Chair of the workshop ApPLIED 2018 (co-located with PODC 2018) and .in 2019 as the General co-Chair of ApPLIED 2019 (co-located with DISC 2019). In 2020 he served as the PC co-Chair of NETYS 2020. As of January 2018, he is on the Editorial Board of Information Processing Letters (subject area: Distributed Computing). Dr. Georgiou’s research has been funded by the University of Cyprus, the Cyprus Research and Innovation Foundation, and the European Commission.
