Brief Curriculum Vitae
Principal Research Associate in the Communications and Information Systems Group, Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University College London. I have a BSc in Electronic, Computer and Systems Engineering from Loughborough University and a PhD in Electronic and Electrical Engineering from UCL.
Before joining UCL I was a Systems Design Engineer at GEC-Plessey Telecommunications (which became Marconi Communications and is now part of Ericsson) until 1992, where I was the chairperson of the RACE I NEMESYS project technical committee while working on TMN architectures and ATM traffic experiments. In 1993, I joined the Foundation for Research and Technology, Institute of Computer Science, Greece as a Research Associate in Telecommunications where I led the RACE II ICM workpackage on performance management case studies and TMN systems design.
I have published over 40 papers and I was the editor and co-author of "Integrated Communications Management of Broadband Networks" (Crete University Press, 1997). I have had a significant involvement in EU research programmes RACE, ACTS, IST and ICT projects (NEMESYS, ICM, VITAL, REFORM, MIAMI, TEQUILA, MESCAL and AGAVE). I was co-investigator of the recently completed EPSRC-funded PeerLive project on streaming live video over p2p networks and I am currently the project manager of the EU FP7 ENVISION project on the cooptimisation of overlay applications and underlying networks and coordinator of the Future Media Networks cluster of EU projects in the Networked Media Systems unit.
My research interests are in planning, management and dynamic control for providing QoS in multiservice networks, p2p networking and novel routing paradigms for the future Internet.
