Panayiotis Charalambous joined the CaSToRC center of the Cyprus Institute in September 2016 firstly as a Computational Scientist and then as an Associate Research Scientist. He is currently working on the applications of Computational Sciences in the Cultural Heritage communities.
Between 2014-2016 he was a post-doctoral fellow at INRIA Rennes, France (the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control) where he worked on novel algorithms for virtual crowd simulation and authoring. In 2014 he completed his PhD from the University of Cyprus where he worked on developing novel data-driven algorithms for Virtual Crowds. He got his Bachelor Degree in Computer Science and Telecommunications from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece in 2002 and his Masters in Advanced Systems Technologies in 2005 from the same university. His bachelor thesis was on clipping algorithms and his master’s thesis was on the generation of light maps using Photon Mapping. He worked as a researcher in the Xi-Group Computer Architecture Lab at the University of Cyprus from July 2005 to January 2007, where he developed software for the estimation of power and thermal properties of General Purpose CPUs. During his PhD studies, Dr. Charalambous worked as a researcher and engineer on several projects funded by RPF and other agencies. He is a member of the Eurographics associations and has served as a reviewer of several prestigious journals and conferences. Reviewer credits include journals such as ACM’s Transactions on Graphics, Computer Graphics Forum, IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics and conferences such as Eurographics, SCA, Motion in Games and CASA.
His main research topics are Simulation and Evaluation of Virtual Humans, Data-Driven techniques and Machine Learning for Computer Graphics and Animation, Computer Animation and Motion Analysis.
