Dr. Efthimiou received his Ph.D. in Mathematical Physics from Cornell University in 1994. He was a Lecturer in Cornell University for one year (1994-1995). He spent 2-years as a Research Associate in Tel Aviv University (1995-1997). He was a Visiting Scientist in Harvard University for one-year (1997-1998) and in Cornell/Columbia University for 2-years (1998-2000) before joining UCF in 2000, where he is an Associate Professor of Physics.
