This is the personal homepage of Lazaros Gallos. I am an Associate Director and Research Professor at DIMACS at Rutgers University, where I am also directing the long-running DIMACS REU summer program. DIMACS fosters research and educational programs on topics that lie at the interface of discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science.

I am a member of the Editorial Boards at Scientific Reports, at PLOS ONE, and at Entropy. I have also been an Associate Editor for the highly selective APS journal Physical Review X.

In the past, I was a Research Associate at the Department of Ecology of the Rutgers University, working with Prof. Nina Fefferman. Before that, I was working with Prof. Hernan Makse at the City College of New York.
I received my PhD in Computational Physics from the Physics Dept. in Univ. of Thessaloniki (advisor Prof. Panos Argyrakis).

My research interests are broad and cover a lot of inter-disciplinary ground. For the last few years I have been working on complex networks science. Currently, I work on (a) understanding fundamental mechanisms behind online social interactions, (b) epidemics spreading, (c) modules organization in the brain, and (d) applications of Machine Learning in Network Science.
