Marios Georgiou


My research has focused on Quantum Cryptography, Cryptocurrencies, and how these two connect. The work I have been most proud of is how to use quantum computing to build super-fast decentralized cryptocurrencies. I am a member of the Pancyprian Choir of New York City and in the pre-COVID era, we would perform concerts with Greek and Cypriot singers.

Before that, he obtained his Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens. During his studies, he interned at the cryptocurrency companies IOHK and ThunderCore.
