Elias Koutsoupias is a professor of computer science at the University of Oxford, UK. He studied at the National Technical University of Athens (BS in electrical engineering) and the University of California, San Diego (PhD in computer science). He previously held faculty positions at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and the University of Athens. His research interests include algorithmic aspects of game theory, economics and networks, online algorithms, decision-making under uncertainty, design and analysis of algorithms, and computational complexity. He received the Gödel Prize for theoretical computer science in 2012 for his work on the Price of Anarchy, in reference to laying the foundations of algorithmic game theory. He is also the recipient of an ERC Advanced Grant on algorithmic game theory.
