Tsampikos Kottos, Ph.D.

  • Professor, Weslyan University
Tsampikos Kottos is Professor of Physics & Mathematics at Wesleyan University. He received his Ph.D. on condensed matter from Univ. of Crete in 1997 and he subsequently was awarded a Feinberg post-doctoral Fellowship to join the Weizmann Institute of Science for the period 1997-1999. Between 1999 and 2005 he was senior researcher at the Max-Planck Institute in Germany. His research interests include linear, nonlinear, and non-Hermitian wave transport, mesoscopic transport and mathematical physics. He has published more than 140 papers. In 1997 he received a US European Office of Air Force R&D Fellowship and in 2006 the International Pnevmatikos Award for outstanding achievements in nonlinear physics. During 2013-2015 he was awarded the Bennet University Endowed Chair for exceptional achievements. In 2015 he was awarded a position at the level of of Researcher A at CNRS, Nice, France.
