I joined the KIOS Research and Innovation Center of Excellence at the University of Cyprus in May 2017 where I am currently contributing to various projects related to localization, tracking, and navigation in telecommunication and smart camera networks. Before that I was leading the geolocation technology research in Huawei Technologies Ireland Research Center working on the design of data-driven positioning solutions for cellular network planning and optimization.

I hold a Diploma in Computer Engineering and Informatics (2003) and a 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). During my Ph.D. I coached the development of several award-winning indoor localization, tracking, and navigation prototype systems, which have been released under open-source license, including Airplace and Anyplace. For my doctoral research work I received the Alpha Bank Cyprus Award for "Creative Research and Innovation".

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