Kyriacos Vitalis received a BSc in Physics and an MSc in Computational Physics at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. During his master studies he was trained in advanced computing/programming in order to solve complex physical and mathematical problems.

Kyriacos then went on to obtain a PhD in Physics at the University of Crete. His thesis concerned the application of quantum physics’ techniques in some kind of biochemical reactions, thus contributing to the new emerging science of quantum biology [1,2,3].

Now, he is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Business and Public Administration at the University of Cyprus working on interdisciplinary projects regarding Data Science, Network Science, Online Social Networks, Science of Success and Digital Marketing.

In particular, his current research focuses on (i) the contagion of selfies in social networks and its impact on digital marketing, as well as (ii) the impact of online social networking on entrepreneurial success.
