Christos Laoudias

 

I hold an Engineering Diploma in Computer Engineering and Informatics (2003) and an M.Sc. in Integrated Hardware and Software Systems (2005) from the University of Patras, Greece, and a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from the University of Cyprus (2014). For my doctoral research, I received the Alpha Bank Cyprus Award for "Creative Research and Innovation".

I joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Cyprus in January 2006 as a research associate working on location-aware applications and positioning platforms. Later that year, I enrolled as a Ph.D. student in the aforementioned department and was granted a scholarship from the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation. In 2009 I joined the KIOS Research Center for Intelligent Systems and Networks at the University of Cyprus as a graduate research assistant working on various EU and nationally projects. I have also coached the development and demonstrated several award-winning prototype systems for indoor localization, tracking, and navigation, including Airplace and Anyplace.

Since April 2014, as a post dostocal fellow he was involved in the FAULT-ADAPTIVE project funded by the ERC Advanced Grant awarded to Prof. Marios Polycarpou. I joined Huawei Ireland Design Center in February 2015 where I am currently working as a geolocation algorithm expert on various indoor/outdoor positioning projects.

I am an IEEE member and serve as TPC member of the International Conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation (IPIN) and the IEEE International Conference on Communications Ad-hoc and Sensor Networking Symposium (ICC-AHSN). I regularly reviews papers for conferences and articles for high impact journals, including IEEE's TC, TKDE, JSAC, and TVT. My research interests include wireless networks, camera sensor networks, mobile communications, positioning and tracking technologies, location-based services (LBS) and fault tolerant location estimation.
