A bit about me;

BIO (download a 2-pager cv here)
IMG_0466I am Professor (Chair) of Wireless Communications at Kingston University London, School of Computer Science and Mathematics (CSM). There I am the co-Director of the Digital Information Research Centre (DIRC) with a staff of about 25 academics, 20 postdoctoral researchers and over 60 PhD students, making it one of the largest in the field in the UK. Upon joining KU in 2007, I co-founded and led a research group on Wireless Multimedia & Networking (WMN). I teach modules on wireless systems and networks. Prior to this post, I worked for Ofcom, the UK Regulator and Competition Authority, as a Senior Research Manager. While at the University of Surrey, UK, I was a postdoc working on virtual distributed testbeds in the Centre for Communication Systems Research (now the 5G Innovation Centre). This was preceded by placements with Intracom-Telecom SA and Maroussi 2004 SA in Athens, Greece. I have managed to raise funding from the EU and UK research and technology frameworks under the ICT and Security programmes. I hold two patents and have published over 180 papers in international journals and conferences and chapters in ten books. I sit at the Board of Directors (BoD) of Ubitech Ltd and advise several governmental and commercial organisations on their research programmes/ agendas and portfolios. I hold a PhD and MSc from the University of Surrey, UK and a BEng from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece. I am senior member of the IEEE, UK chartered engineer and member of the Technical Chamber of Greece.
