Hi, bonjour, yeia

Welcome to my personal web-page. I am Argyris Kalogeratos (Αργύρης Καλογεράτος), I come from Patras, Greece. My background is on Computer Science and I have a PhD on Machine Learning (2013).

Click for short bio

Argyris Kalogeratos has BSc and MSc degrees in Computer Science from the University of Ioannina, Greece. He holds a PhD in Machine Learning and Information Technologies (2013, supervisor: Prof. Aristidis Likas), from the same Institution. He has been a research scientist in the Centre of Applied Mathematics, ENS Cachan, France (2013-2018), and since 2018 he is a staff researcher in the Centre Borelli, ENS Paris-Saclay, Université Paris-Saclay, France. His interests include Machine Learning, Statistics, Network Science, Decision & Control, and Computational Social Systems. He has been involved in several synergistic projects between Academia and Industry, for problems related to multimedia mining, social network analysis and mining, computational epidemiology, marketing, transportation, communication systems, and bioinformatics. Argyris likes multidisciplinary research and the fusion of ideas, concepts, viewpoints, originating from different domains.


Position: I am a permanent researcher at the Centre Giovanni Borelli (ex Centre de Mathématiques et de Leurs Applications – CMLA), Ecole Normale Supérieure Paris-Saclay (ENS Paris-Saclay), University Paris-Saclay, France, and member of the Machine Learning and Massive Data Analysis (MLMDA) research group (head: Nicolas Vayatis).

Research focus: Coordinator of the ML on Graphs research theme.

Research initiatives: I participate to the research activities of the ML Industrial Big Data Chair (C.Borelli team: Charles Truong, Harry Sevi, Argyris Kalogeratos, Mathilde Mougeot, Nicolas Vayatis — past: Julien Audiffren). Among our industrial partners, there are ATOSWordline, SNCF, CEA, Michelin, Bertin Tech, and Banque de France.

Past funding: My research position at CMLA has been funded in the past by the MORANE project (in collaboration with SNCF railway company) and the SODATECH project  (funded by the French state) for which I was the research coordinator and responsible for CMLA’s part. See more details at the “Projects” section.
