Welcome!

This is the personal homepage of Lazaros Gallos. Starting September 2015, I am an Associate Director and Research Professor at DIMACS at Rutgers University.

DIMACS fosters research and educational programs on topics that lie at the interface of discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science. DIMACS was founded as an NSF "Science and Technology Center" in 1989 and is a consortium of Rutgers and Princeton Universities, AT&T Labs, Bell Labs (Lucent Technologies), NEC Laboratories America and Telcordia Technologies. Affiliate Members: Avaya Labs, Georgia Institute of Technology, HP Labs, IBM Research, Microsoft Research, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Stevens Institute of Technology.

I am also an Associate Editor for the highly selective APS journal Physical Review X, and an editor at Scientific Reports.

I have been a Research Associate at the Department of Ecology of the Rutgers University, working with Prof. Nina Fefferman. Before that, I was working with Prof. Hernan Makse at the City College of New York.
I received my PhD in Computational Physics from the Physics Dept. in Univ. of Thessaloniki (advisor Prof. Panos Argyrakis).

My research interests are broad and cover a lot of inter-disciplinary ground. For the last few years I have been working on complex networks science. Currently, I work on (a) understanding fundamental mechanisms behind online social interactions, (b) epidemics spreading, and (c) modules organization in the brain.
