Biographical Statement

Praxitelis grew up in Greece and obtained his undergraduate degree in physics from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (2011), followed by a joint Master degree from ETH Zurich and Ecole Polytechnique Paris (2011-2013) and a PhD in string theory at IPhT Saclay, France, under the supervision of Mariana Grana (2013-2016). He then held postdoctoral positions at the University of Padova (2016-2018) and Utah State University (2018-2020) before moving to Edinburgh as a postdoctoral researcher. His research interests include flux compactifications with a focus on generalised geometry, AdS/CFT duality and the (holographic) study of black holes.
