Professor Andreas Demosthenous was born in Nicosia, Cyprus, in 1969. He received the B.Eng. degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Leicester, Leicester, U.K., in 1992, the M.Sc. degree in Telecommunications Technology from Aston University, Birmingham, U.K., in 1994, and the Ph.D. degree in Electronic and Electrical engineering from University College London (UCL), London, U.K., in 1998.

From 1998 to 2000, he held a Postdoctoral Research Fellow position with the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, UCL. In 2000, he was appointed to the academic faculty of the same department, where he is currently a Reader and heads the Analogue and Biomedical Electronics Research Group. His main area of research is analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits for biomedical, communication, sensor and signal processing applications. He has published over 100 articles in journals and international conference proceedings.

Professor Demosthenous is a member of the Analog Signal Processing Technical Committee (ASPTC) and the Biomedical Circuits and Systems (BioCAS) Technical Committee of the IEEE Circuits and Systems (CAS) Society. He is also a member of the U.K. Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Peer Review College. He is an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I: Regular Papers and an Associate Editor for the IEEE CAS Society Newsletter. Since 2008 he has served on the International Advisory Board for Physiological Measurement. In 2006 and 2007, he was an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II: Express Briefs. He is a member of the Technical Programme Committee (TPC) of various IEEE conferences including ESSCIRC, BioCAS and ECCTD

My main area of expertise is analogue and mixed-signal integrated circuit design (CMOS and BiCMOS) for biomedical, communications and video signal processing applications. I lead the Analogue and Biomedical Electronics Research Group. My research work has very strong cross-disciplinary and industrial collaboration. The work of the Group is supported through research grants from various sources including the European Commission (FP6 and FP7 programmes), the UK Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) and the UK Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). I have research activities in the following application areas:

  • Implantable Devices for Neural Prostheses (recording, stimulation, telemetry)
  • Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) and Bio-Assays (lab-on-a-chip)
  • Readout Electronics for Position Sensors
  • Analogue-to-Digital Converter Design
  • Analogue Decoders for Digital Communication Systems
  • Analogue Motion Estimators for Digital Video Coding
