George Alexandropoulos

George C. Alexandropoulos (S'07–M'10–SM'15) received the Engineering Diploma, M.A.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Engineering and Informatics from the School of Engineering, University of Patras, Greece in 2003, 2005, and 2010, respectively. He has held research positions at various Greek universities and research institutes, as well as at the Mathematical and Algorithmic Sciences Lab, Paris Research Center, Huawei Technologies France, and 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, active and passive reconfigurable metasurfaces, millimeter wave communications, as well as distributed machine learning algorithms. He currently serves as an Editor for IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Communications Letters, IEEE Wireless Communications Letters, ELSEVIER Computer Networks, Frontiers in Communications and Networks, and the ITU Journal on Future and Evolving Technologies, as well as a guest editor for various IEEE journals. Prof. Alexandropoulos is a Senior Member of the IEEE Communications, Signal Processing, and Information Theory Societies as well as a registered Professional Engineer of the Technical Chamber of Greece. He is also a a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Communications Society. He has participated and/or technically managed more than 10 European Union (EU) research and innovation projects, as well as several Greek and international research projects. He is currently NKUA's principal investigator for the EU H2020 RISE‑6G research and innovation project dealing with RIS-empowered smart wireless environments. He 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, and a Best Paper Award from the IEEE GLOBECOM 2021.
