Hello, my name is Thanos Gentimis and I am an Assistant Professor at the Experimental Statistics Department at LSU. My field of expertise is Data Analytics with a special interest in Machine Learning and specifically Neural Networks. I received my Ph.D. in Theoretical Mathematics (Algebraic Topology) from the University of Florida in 2011 under the guidance of Dr. A. Dranishnikov
I have a master’s degree in Theoretical Mathematics from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece, where I also received my bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Education.
After my PhD, I worked for two years at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at North Carolina State University (2012-2014). Parallel to that, I was a member of the Lab of Analytical Sciences, a collaboration between NSA and NCSU. After North Carolina, I worked for 3 years as an Assistant professor of Mathematics and Analytics at Florida Polytechnic University (2014-2017) and served as the Head of the Big Data and Health Informatics lab which I helped create between 2015 and 2016.
My publications range from Theoretical Mathematics (Algebraic Topology – Geometric Group Theory) to Engineering (Signal Processing, Pattern Recognition) to Health Informatics and recently Forestry and Agriculture. I am also interested in the evolution of Networks (social mostly) and have published in Undergraduate Mathematics Education journals. I am the co-creator of two patents one for a Gigapixel Image Mosaicking algorithm and another for Efficient Wheeze Detection, sponsored by NCSU. Welcome to my page!
