Below you will find answers to some questions that I am asked frequently enough to comment on.
― Why are you using "Constantinos" as your name in papers?
First and foremost, let me state for the record that this certainly is not a matter of tax evasion. My passport refers to me as "Konstantinos", making it my name for all legal purposes. Now, during the work on what resulted as the first published paper that has my name on (Diversity and arbitrage in models of equity markets), Ioannis Karatzas (the mastermind behind the paper) wrote down my name as "Constantinos". I looked at it a bit, contemplated a little more, and realized that I like it. There is a certain air of Byzantine era associated to "C", as opposed to "K". Then, it got stuck. Too late to stop now...
― I am interested in your research and I want to work with you! What should I do?
