Konstantinos Lagoudakis studied in Athens, Greece where he received a Bachelor of Science in Physics with specialization on Solid State Physics at the National Kapodestrian University. He went on with his studies at Imperial College of Science and Technology in London, United Kingdom where he received a Master of Science in Optics and Photonics. He then moved to the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland where he completed a PhD on fundamental properties of exciton-polariton condensates. His ground-breaking experimental demonstrations of integer and fractional vortices in polariton condensates earned him the prestigious Swiss Physical Society award in 2010 and the EPFL doctorate award in 2012. Since 2012 he has been a postdoctoral research fellow at the Ginzton Lab of Stanford University where he has developed a magnetic spectroscopy experiment for the investigation and coherent manipulation of charged quantum dots in nanoresonators towards the creation of efficient spin photon interfaces.
