## Overview

Dr. Efstathiou is Associate Professor of Mathematics at Duke Kunshan University since October 2019. He is currently serving as the DKU co-director of the Zu Chongzhi Center for Mathematics and Computational Sciences. He received his BSc and MSc in Physics from the University of Athens, Greece, and his PhD in Physics from the Université Littoral Côte d’Opale, France, in 2004 with the highest distinction, “très honorable avec les félicitations du jury”. After a postdoc at the University of Groningen, he worked as Lecturer at the Xi’an Jiaotong Liverpool University in Suzhou, China, where he also served as acting Head of Department. In 2014 he returned to Groningen where he held an Assistant Professor position at the Department of Mathematics prior to joining Duke Kunshan University. His research interests lie in the areas of dynamical systems and mathematical physics with the main focus being on the geometry of integrable Hamiltonian systems and the dynamics of coupled oscillator networks. He has published a research monograph in the prestigious Springer Lecture Notes in Mathematics and several papers in top journals in his field, including Reviews of Modern Physics, Physical Review Letters, and Communications in Mathematical Physics.
