George C. Alexandropoulos (S'07–M'10–SM'15) received the Diploma degree in Computer Engineering and Informatics (integrated M.Sc.), the M.A.Sc. degree in Signal and Communications Processing Systems, and the Ph.D. degree in Wireless Communications from the School of Engineering, University of Patras, Greece in 2003, 2005, and 2010, respectively. He has held senior research positions at various Greek universities and research institutes, and he was a Senior Research Engineer and a Principal Researcher at the Mathematical and Algorithmic Sciences Lab, Paris Research Center, Huawei Technologies France, and at the Technology Innovation Institute, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, respectively. He is currently an Assistant Professor with the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, School of Sciences, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA), Greece. His research interests span the general areas of algorithmic design and performance analysis for wireless networks with emphasis on multi-antenna transceiver hardware architectures, full duplex radios, active and passive Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces (RISs), integrated communications and sensing, millimeter wave and THz communications, as well as distributed machine learning algorithms. He currently serves as an Editor for IEEE Transactions on Communications, IEEE Wireless Communications Letters, Frontiers in Communications and Networks, and the ITU Journal on Future and Evolving Technologies. He also is, and has been, involved in the organization of various special sessions and workshops at flagship IEEE conferences. In the past, he has held various fixed-term and guest editorial positions for IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Communications Letters, and ELSEVIER Computer Networks, as well as for various special issues at IEEE journals. Prof. Alexandropoulos is a Senior Member of the IEEE Communications, Signal Processing, Vehicular Technology, and Information Theory Societies, the vice-chair of the EURASIP Technical Area Committee on Signal Processing for Communications and Networking, as well as a registered Professional Engineer of the Technical Chamber of Greece. He is also a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Communications Society. He has participated and/or technically managed more than 15 European Union (EU), international, and Greek research, innovation, and development projects. He is currently NKUA's principal investigator for the EU H2020 RISE-6G and the SNS JU TERRAMETA projects dealing with RIS-empowered smart wireless environments and THz RISs, respectively. For the former project, he also serves as the dissemination manager, whereas, for the latter, as the technical manager. Prof. Alexandropoulos has received the best Ph.D. thesis award 2010, the IEEE Communications Society Best Young Professional in Industry Award 2018, the EURASIP Best Paper Award of the Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking 2021, the IEEE Marconi Prize Paper Award in Wireless Communications 2021, the Best Paper Award from the IEEE GLOBECOM 2021, and the IEEE ComSoc Fred Ellersick Prize 2023.
