Ioannis Chatzigeorgiou

Senior Lecturer @ School of Computing & Communications, Lancaster University


This website provides details about my educational and professional background, my research interests, my teaching responsibilities and my administrative duties, both internal and external. Please either scroll down or use the menu to navigate my website.


My research interests lie in the area of communication theory and include the modelling, analysis, performance evaluation and design of communication systems. My focus has been on coding schemes for multiple-antenna systems and cooperative networks. Currently, my focus is on random linear coding over finite fields for ultra-reliable, low-delay communications.


In 2023-2024, I am involved in the teaching of the following modules:

  1. SCC.131: Digital Systems (BSc Computer Science, Cyber Security, Data Science, Software Engineering)
  2. SCC.460: Data Science Fundamentals (MSc Data Science)


As part of my departmental duties in 2022-2023, I fulfil the following roles:

  1. Postgraduate Teaching Director
  2. Postgraduate Examinations Officer
Other duties include participation in committee meetings, collaboration with international partners, and regular appraisals of PhD students.

Interested in pursuing a PhD?

If you share my research interests and you are thinking of applying for PhD studies, provided that you can secure your own funding, read about the application process and feel free to contact me.
