Dr Giannopoulos is a lecturer in Computer Science at Middlesex and a member of the Foundations of Computing group.
His research interests span the areas of exact and approximation algorithms, parameterized complexity, computational geometry and geometric optimization.
He enjoys studying fundamental algorithmic problems coming from shape matching and computer vision, geometric graphs and networks, sensor networks, and discrete geometry and optimization.
He received his PhD from Utrecht University in the Netherlands, in the field of computational geometry and has held postdoctoral research positions at several universities in Germany, including Free University Berlin and Humboldt University Berlin.
