Curriculum Vitae

I was born in Athens, Greece. I received the B.S. degree in informatics, the M.Sc. degree in telecommunications, and the Ph.D. degree from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Athens, in 1997, 1999, and 2005, respectively. My doctoral thesis was on all-optical signal processing by means of fiber-based devices for data network applications.


The period 2000 – 2010 I served as a postdoctoral researcher at the Optical Communications Laboratory, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, participating in local and European projects. Since 2010, I am with the Department of Informatics of the Technological Educational Institute of Athens, Greece. Now I work as a Professor for the University of West Attica which is a continuation of the Technological Educational Institute of Athens under the law 4521/2018.


My current research interests include high-speed all-optical transmission systems and networks, nonlinear effects in optical fibers, all-optical signal processing and all-optical networking, nonlinear effects in photonic waveguides, mid-infrared photonics, cryptography at the physical layer and neuromorphic computing.


I have authored or co-authored more than 180 articles published in international scientific journals and conference proceedings. My published work has been cited more than 3000 times by other researchers.


I also serve as a reviewer for the journals of the IEEE, Elsevier, Nature and the Optical Society of America and I am an OSA senior member. I am an associate editor of OSA Continuum since 2018. I serve as a member of the Greek Universities Network (GUnet) and the Greek School Network ( representing the University of West Attica. I have been a member of the Technical Programme Committee of ECOC 2017, 2018. In Nov. 2017, I represented Greece in the 39th General Conference of UNESCO in Paris participating in the Education Commission. I served as a member of the board of directors of GRNET from January of 2019 till August of 2019. My name is among top 2 per cent of the most-cited scientists in various disciplines worldwide according to the list released by Stanford University in 2019 and 2020.
