My name is Konstantinos Pelechrinis and I joined the University of Pittsburgh in Fall 2010, where I am an Associate Professor at the School of Computing and Information and I lead the Network Data Science Lab. Prior I received my Phd degree from the Computer Science department at the University of California at Riverside, under the supervision of Prof. Srikanth V. Krishnamurthy. Before joining UCR, I obtained my Diploma degree from the Electrical and Computer Engineering department of the National Techincal University of Athens, where I worked with Prof. Vasileios Maglaris at the Network Management and Optimal Design Laboratory.
My research interest include:
In more detail, my research interestes includes network science and the development of metrics and models for complex systems. I am involved in: (a) developing models and algorithms for intelligent urban services, (b) understanding the social, spatial, temporal and network dynamics of the behavior of people as captured through LBSNs, and (c) studying the effect of LBSNs on bussinesses.
I am also interested in the development of evaluation metrics for sports teams and players, as well as in the theoretical modeling of sports that will allow us understand deeper the game.
I have taught the following classes (material is available only through the University's blackboard):
MST students that want advising please see here before contacting me. Furthermore, topics for MST students' independent studies will be posted here. Hence, if there are no topics it means that I cannot take any student for independent studies. If you are interested pursuing research with me please complete this form.
If you want a reference letter from me, please contact me first! If I receive a notification for a reference letter without having talked first, chances are that I will not respond to the request.
