I 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.
From 2000 to 2002, I held positions in Marconi Communications in Beeston and Inmarsat in London. I joined Autonomy Corporation for a short period of time in 2006 but I returned to Cambridge University in 2007 as a postdoctoral research associate at the Computer Laboratory, where I remained until December 2009. Before joining Lancaster University in October 2010, I was a research fellow at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim.
During my undergraduate studies, I received the 1996 Technical Chamber of Greece Award for my academic performance and the 1998 Ericsson Award of Excellence for the best undergraduate project. My MSc studies were supported by the Alexander S. Onassis foundation and my thesis received the 2000 Satellite Advisory Board Prize for the year's best thesis. My PhD research was funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) but I also received bursaries from Clare Hall and the Ford Britain Trust. In 2008 I received an international short visit grant by the Royal Academy of Engineering to spend two months as a visiting researcher at Politecnico di Torino in Italy. My postdoctoral research at NTNU was supported by a 2010 Alain Bensoussan fellowship from the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM).
My research interests focus on the application of communication theory and signal processing techniques for the study, analysis and design of wireless networks.
