Associate Professor Maria Vlasiou – Eindhoven University of Technology
Maria Vlasiou is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), a Research Fellow of the European research institute Eurandom, and Scientific Staff member of CWI. Born in Greece in 1980, she received her B.Sc. (2002, Hons.) and Ph.D. (2006) from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and TU/e, respectively. In 2006, she moved to the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she first worked as a Research Engineer and later on as a Postdoctoral Fellow.
Her research interests center on stochastic processes and stochastic operations research. Her research focuses on the performance of stochastic processing networks with layered architectures and on perturbation analysis for heavy-tailed risk models. Other interests include Lévy processes, large deviations for non-monotone stochastic recursions, and proportional fairness in heavy traffic for bandwidth-sharing networks. She has supervised four PhD theses on these topics that have received the Willem van Zwet runner-up award and a Stieltjes-prize finalist position.
