Panayotis Mertikopoulos graduated as valedictorian from the University of Athens (2003). He obtained his MSc (2005) and MPhil (2006) summa cum laude in Mathematics from Brown University, and his PhD (on “Stochastic Perturbations in Game Theory and Applications to Networks”) from the University of Athens (2010). During 2010-11, he held a postdoctoral fellowship in the Economics Department of the Ecole Polytechnique in Paris. Since 2011, he has been a CNRS researcher at the Laboratoire d’Informatique de Grenoble. His research interests lie in the areas of game theory, online and stochastic optimization, and algorithmic learning, as well as in their applications to operations research and wireless networks.
Mertikopoulos has co-authored more than 30 journal papers and 25 conference papers. In 2012, he received the best paper award at the 2012 International Conference on Network Games, Control and Optimization (NETGCOOP 2012) for his paper, “Strange Bedfellows: Riemann, Gibbs, and Vector Gaussian Multiple Access Channels.” He has served as General Co-Chair of GEL 2016 and AlgoGT 2013, Technical Program Co-Chair of WiOpt 2014, Track Co-Chair of IFORS 2014, and Publications Chair of WiOpt 2013 and ValueTools 2012, and is on the TPC of numerous other conferences. He is an elected member of the steering committee of the Optimization and Decision Theory branch of the Société de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles (SMAI), and co-founded the Paris Working Group on Evolutionary Game Theory in 2011. Mertikopoulos also serves on the reviewing boards of numerous journals in optimization, game theory, probability, wireless communications, and signal processing.
