Since 2008 I am Professor of Communication Networks coordinating activities in networking and network/service management in the Communication and Information Systems Group at the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University College London.
Before that I was for 10 years Professor of Communication and Information Systems, leading the activities of the Networks Research Group in the Centre for Communication Systems Research at the Department of Electronic Engineering, University of Surrey.
I hold a Diploma (MEng equivalent) in Electrical & Mechanical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, and MSc and PhD degrees in Computer Science from the Department of Computer Science at University College London. Before re-joining University College London in the beginning of 2008, I was Professor at Surrey leading research activities in networking and network/service management. Before 1998, I was Senior Research Fellow and Lecturer at UCL, leading research activities in the area of network/service management. At both Surrey and UCL I established and led highly successful research teams while I have also been involved in extensive teaching and curriculum development activities. My research interests focus on networking and network & service management and have included aspects such as traffic engineering, quality of service management, self-organised ad hoc/mesh networks, policy-based systems, autonomic networking, information-centric networking, multimedia service control and object-oriented communications middleware. I have published in all these areas and my publications have been extensively cited, for relevant citations see also my Goole Scholar page.
I am on the editorial boards of the IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management, the IEEE Communications, the IEEE Communication Surveys & Tutorials and the Springer Journal of Network and System Management. I am also involved in a number of international conference program committees. I have consulted for many communications companies in the UK and Europe and have contributed to standardisation activities in ISO, ITU-T, TMF and IRTF/IETF.
