Dimoklis Gkountaroulis (known also as Dimos Goundaroulis) obtained his PhD in Mathematics from the National Technical University of Athens in January 2014. His thesis is entitled “Framization of the Temperley-Lieb algebra and related link invariants”. He was a post-doc of the “Algebraic modelling of topological and computational structures” group at the Department of Mathematics at the NTUA until August 2016. His latest results regard a new 2-variable invariant for classical knots and links that is stronger than the Jones polynomial on links. Since October 1st 2016 he is a post-doc researcher in the group of Andrzej Stasiak.
