Welcome to my personal webpage

During my doctoral studies, I conducted research on how artificial intelligence can be used in the design and analysis of future electricity markets.

I currently work as a Senior Data Scientist at Machine Learning Programs, focusing on machine learning applications in insurance markets.

My interests focus on multi-agent systems (mechanism design, game-theory) and learning.

  • Curriculum Vitae

    Georgios Methenitis was born on the 10th of October, 1988, in Athens, Greece. He graduated from the Technical University of Crete, with a Diploma in Electronic and Computer Engineering in 2012. In December 2014 he graduated with a Master's degree in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

    Third place in the Iran Open 2013


    As a MS.c. student at the University of Amsterdam he was a Teaching Assistant and a member of the Dutch Nao Team, a student team participating in the RoboCup - Standard Platform League. He conducted his MS.c. thesis in collaboration with the European Space Agency, where he worked in the Advanced Concepts Team during the summer of 2014. In February 2015, he started his Ph.D research at the Centrum Wiskunde \& Informatica in Amsterdam and the Delft University of Technology. His scientific contributions led to various publications in top-tier AI conferences such as, IJCAI, AAMAS and GECCO.
