Evangelia Kalligiannaki worked as a Research Scientist at Professor Raul F. Tempone's Stochastic Numerics Research Group at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST).

Research Interests

Evangelia's research interests concerned the development, analysis, and implementation of model reduction (coarse-graining) techniques for high dimensional particle systems at multiple spaces and time scales, and included studying macro-molecular and stochastic lattice systems.

She was particularly interested in the development of effective equilibrium and non-equilibrium coarse-grained models using statistical mechanics and information theory tools. Moreover, she studied the development of data-driven models for molecular systems with variational and Bayesian inference methods. She also studied Markov chain Monte Carlo numerical methods and their appropriate design using coarse-graining techniques, in order to accelerate microscopic simulations.
