Ioannis Tzortzis is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher at KIOS Research and Innovation Center of Excellence (appointed in March 2018). He received the Diploma degree in Electrical Engineering from the Higher Technical Institute, Cyprus, in 2003 and his BSc degree in Electrical Engineering and Informatics from Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary, in 2007. He completed his MSc studies and PhD studies in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Cyprus in 2009 and 2015, respectively. Following his PhD, he worked as a research scientist (until January 2016) at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Cyprus. Between February 2016 and February 2018, he worked at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Cyprus as a Postdoctoral Researcher.

Throughout his academic studies and research work, he had the opportunity to contact research in a broad range of problems and get involved in numerous interdisciplinary projects, mainly in the areas of stochastic control theory and optimization, information theory and communication, population dynamics, and in systems biology. In brief, his research interests can be categorized into: (i) extremum problems with Total Variation distance metrics, with applications to systems under uncertainty and ambiguity, (ii) optimization problems for sequential decision making, with applications to minimax stochastic control via finite and infinite horizon dynamic programming, (iii) high dimensional Markov processes approximation, with applications to model and graph reduction, (iv) optimal control and information strategies in control-coding capacity of stochastic systems, with applications to communication and information theory, (v) reconstruction of gene regulatory networks using experimental time series datasets with increasing complexity, with applications to systems biology via linear and nonlinear system identification, and (vi) modeling and analysis of dynamical population models, with applications to human population for policy making and planning. His current research focuses on active fault diagnosis and control of distributed dynamical systems. His research outcomes are published in top-ranked, peer-reviewed, engineering and applied mathematics conferences and journals.
