A bit about me;

BIO (download a 2-pager cv here)
3046-PORTRAIT-CHRISTOS_POLITIS-EZZIDIN_ALWAN-JPGI am Professor (Chair) of Wireless Communications at Kingston University London, School of Computer Science and Mathematics (CSM), where I am currently the Director of the Digital Information Research Centre (DIRC). DIRC is staffed with about 20 academics, 10 postdoctoral researchers and over 50 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, networks and protocols. 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 Researcher working on virtual distributed testbeds in the Centre for Communication Systems Research (now the 5G Innovation Centre). This was preceded by engineering positions with Intracom-Telecom SA and Maroussi 2004 SA in Athens, Greece. I have managed to raise sustained funding from the EU and UK research and technology frameworks under the ICT and Security programmes (FP5/6/7, H2020, EPSRC and Innovate UK). I hold two patents and have published over 180 papers in international journals and conferences and chapters in eleven books. I sit on the Board of Directors (BoD) of Ubitech Ltd and advise and consult for several governmental and commercial organisations across the EU, USA, Canada and India. I hold a PhD and MSc from the University of Surrey, UK and a BEng from the University of Athens, Greece, all in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. I am senior member of the IEEE and UK chartered engineer.
