Despina Stasi holds a PhD in Mathematical Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she enjoyed working on directed hypergraphs, Horn formulas and graph crossing numbers for her PhD Thesis on “Combinatorial Problems in Graph Drawing and Knowledge Representation,” completed in 2012. She continued studying graphs, hypergraphs , their properties and their applications as a postdoctoral scholar on the DARPA-funded GRAPHS program “Algebraic Statistics for Network Models” at the Pennsylvania State University and the Illinois Institute of Technology. She joined the iSocial program as a Marie Curie ER Fellow at the University of Cyprus in November 2014.
Theoretical and computational problems in discrete structures using tools from combinatorics, computer science and algebraic statistics; applications of graphs and hypergraphs; network science.
