I am Professor of Communication Networks coordinating research 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. I am Fellow of the IEEE and member of the ACM.

From 1998 until 2007 I was Professor of Communication and Information Systems, leading the activities of the Networks Research Group in the Institute of Communication Systems at the Department of Electronic Engineering, University of Surrey.

I hold a Diploma (MEng equivalent) in 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 Lecturer and before Senior Research Fellow at UCL Computer Science Dept., leading research activities in the area of network/service management. At both UCL and Surrey 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 network resource management, traffic engineering, quality of service, autonomic networking, network programmability, content-based networking and communications middleware. I have published in all these areas and my publications have been extensively cited, for relevant citations see my Google Scholar page.

In 2011 I received the IEEE/IFIP Daniel Stokesbury award for distinguished technical contributions to the growth of the network management field. In 2017 I became IEEE Fellow "for contributions to network resource management and content-based networking".

I am/have been 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. In fact, over the last 10 years I have been serving as the leading editor of the IEEE Communications bi-annual series on Network & Service 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.
