Sotiriadis Spyros

Assistant Professor
220 Physics Bldg


Spyros Sotiriadis received a B.Sc. in Physics from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens in 2005, an M.Sc. in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics from Cambridge University in 2006 and a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from Oxford University in 2010. In his PhD thesis he studied the out-of-equilibrium dynamics of Quantum Field Theory models after abrupt parameter changes ("Quantum Quenches in Extended Systems"). His academic geneaology tree is here.        

From 2009 to 2022 he worked as a researcher at universities or research institutions in Italy (SISSA, Pisa University, University Roma III), Slovenia (University of Ljubljana) and Germany (Freie Universität Berlin). He has been the Principal Investigator of three research grants, including the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action "TNTCSA" (Grant agreement ID: 101030988) funded by the European Commission. He was elected Assistant Professor at the Department of Physics of the University of Crete in 2021.
