V. Orestis Papadigenopoulos

PhD Student in Theoretical Computer Science

I am a first year PhD student at the Department of Computer Science at The Univeristy of Texas at Austin, supported by the Provost's Graduate Excellence Fellowship. I am widely interested in the field of theoretical computer science with emphasis on the design and analysis of (approximation) algorithms. Prior of joining UT, I was fortunate to by advised by Prof. Dimitris Fotakis.

My current research focuses on approximation algorithms for scheduling and load balancing problems.
