Research Associate

Kostas Filippas holds a diploma in Physics (2016) from the Physics Department of the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA), with a thesis on ‘Relativistic Interactions and Lie Symmetries of Differential Equations’ under the supervision of M.Tsamparlis, and a MSc degree in Theoretical Physics (2018) from the Physics Department of the School of Applied Mathematics and Natural Sciences (SEMFE) of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), with a thesis on ‘The AdS/CFT Correspondence: the Penrose Limit and the BMN Sector’ under the supervision of K.Sfetsos and A.Kehagias. He holds a Ph.D. in Physics (2021) on ‘Duality and Integrability in Superstring and Gauge Field Theory’ from the Physics department of Swansea University, Wales UK,, worked under the supervision of C.Nunez. As a Ph.D candidate, he was a member of the Particle Theory and Cosmology group in Swansea. Since then he holds a Post-Doc position in INPP, Demokritos.
