Professor of Analogue and Biomedical Electronics, Professor Andreas Demosthenous citation reads “For contributions to integrated circuits for active medical devices.”

Professor Demosthenous has made eminent contributions to the advancement of bioelectronics through innovations in integrated circuit design, system architectures and signal processing methods. His innovations have contributed to improving safety and performance in integrated circuit design for active medical devices such as spinal cord and brain stimulators, as well as healthcare wearables.

small_gpavlou.jpgProfessor of Communication Networks, Professor George Pavlou’s citation reads "For contributions to network resource management and content-based networking".

Professor Pavlou’s research focuses on networking, network management and service engineering. He pioneered a holistic network resource management framework with associated algorithms and protocols, which has been widely adopted by Internet service providers for traffic-engineering their networks and supporting differentiated quality services. In recent years he has been a key driving force behind Information-Centric Networking, with his pioneering work on in-network caching being widely recognised and influencing the evolution of content distribution networks. His research has resulted in a number of best paper awards, panel talks and keynote speeches in high class IEEE conferences. He has also been serving as the leading editor of the IEEE Communications bi-annual series on Network & Service Management over the last 10 years.

The IEEE Grade of Fellow is conferred by the IEEE Board of Directors upon a person with an outstanding record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. The total number selected in any one year cannot exceed 0.1% of the total voting membership. IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical community as a prestigious honour and an important career achievement.
