Makris Konstantinos

Assistant Professor
225α Physics Bldg

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. His academic genealogy tree is here.


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.


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.
