Short CV

Dr. Pavlos Pavlidis is a Research Associate (Researcher C) of the Computational BioMedicine Laboratory (CBML) at the Institute of Computer Science (ICS), FORTH. He holds a Diploma (M.Sc. Equivalent) degree in Agricultural Biotechnology, an M.Sc. in Plant Molecular Biology and Biotechnology. He received his Ph.D. degree in 2011 (summa cum laude) from the University of Munich, Germany under the supervision of Prof. Wolfgang Stephan. From 2011 to 2013 he worked in the group of Prof. Alexandros Stamatakis in Heidelberg on high performance population genetics as a postdoctoral fellow. In 2013, he returned in Greece as a postdoctoral fellow and from 2014 to 2016 he was a Marie-Curie postdoctoral fellow. Since April 2016 he has joined the CBML at ICS as a Researcher C. His expertise and research lies on the computational and theoretical population genetics and evolutionary biology. He is also interested in Bioinformatics on genomics data. He is teaching in the Bioinformatics Graduate program of the Medical School of UoC and Bioinformatics related courses in the Biology and Computer Science departments of UoC.
