Project members and affiliated members
Project member, Lecturer in Communication Systems
Ioannis joined Lancaster University in October 2010. He received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in Electrical Engineering from Democritus University of Thrace, Greece in 1997, the MSc degree in Satellite Communication Engineering from the University of Surrey in 2000 and the PhD degree from the University of Cambridge in 2007. Before joining Lancaster University, he was a post-doctoral research associate at the Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge and an ERCIM research fellow at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). His research interests focus on the application of communication theory and signal processing techniques for the study, analysis and design of wireless networks.

Project member, Post-doctoral Research Associate
Andrea completed his PhD in "Telecommunication Systems and Telematics" at the University of Florence (Firenze, Italy). His research activity has been mainly devoted to the mathematical modelling and optimization of broadcast and multicast communications over LTE/LTE-Advanced networks. In particular, his dissertation deals with defining resource allocation models, which ensure that all the users (or a given subset of them) successfully recover delivered data flows with a certain probability. Communication reliability is ensured by optimized network coding schemes. He took part in several research activities aiming at optimizing broadcast and multicast layered video services (namely, H.264-based video streams) over Single Cell- and Single Frequency Network-eMBMS telecommunication systems.

Amjad Saeed Khan
Affiliated member, Ph.D. student
After completing his MSc degree in Digital Signal Processing and Intelligent Systems with distinction from Lancaster University, Amjad started his Ph.D. at Lancaster University under the supervision of Dr. Ioannis Chatzigeorgiou. His focus is on Network Error Control for Content Streaming Data and his research contributes to the objectives of the R2D2 project.
Affiliated member, Postgraduate student
(MSc by Research in Communication Systems)
After finishing his A Levels in Mechanical Maths, Physics and Computing at Yale College Wrexham, he moved to Lancaster University. After four years, he was awarded a 1st Class MEng in Computer Systems Engineering. He has contributed to the outputs of the EPSRC funded R2D2 project. He successfully defended his thesis entitled "Performance assessment of fountain-coded schemes for progressive packet recovery" on the 21st of November 2014 and he has been recommended for the MSc by Research degree with Distinction. He has joined Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) since September 2014.
