Ioannis Tzortzis 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. Since March 2018 he is a member of KIOS Research and Innovation Center of Excellence.
His research interests include stochastic dynamical decision and control systems, optimization subject to distributional ambiguity, minimax dynamic games, and Markov Decision theory. Throughout his academic career, he had the opportunity to contact research in a broad range of problems and get involved in numerous interdisciplinary projects in the areas of information theory and communication, systems biology and population dynamics, active fault diagnosis, etc. His research outcomes are published in top-ranked, peer- reviewed, engineering and applied mathematics journals and conference proceedings, that include SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization, IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, Systems and Control Letters, and others.
In addition, in 2018 he received a Didaktor fellowship funded by the Cyprus Research and Innovation Foundation.
