Welcome to my personal site
My name is Apostolos Apostolaras and I obtained my PhD from the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Thessaly, UTH, Greece (my work was supervised by Prof. Leandros Tassiulas). I am currently working as a research scientist and I am also affiliated with the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas, CERTH, Greece.
I received the Diploma (5 years studies) in Communications and Computer Engineering from the University of Thessaly in 2007. In 2009, I obtained the MS degree in Communications and Computer Engineering from the same University.
My current research efforts focus on wireless networking, especially in the design. modeling and implementation of novel networking architectures in the emerging field of broadband wireless communications, cellular and non-cellular mesh deployments. My research interests lie but not limited to the definition of methodologies derived from optimization theory and distilled into practical system implementation. I am also interested in experimental based research in testbeds for networking systems performance evaluation. Particular objectives adhere to my interests, aim at the system performance improvement for reducing power consumption and maximizing throughput while also preserving sufficient QoS guarantees.
Fields of interest: Wireless Networking, Testbed Experimentation, Resource Allocation, Routing and Scheduling Techniques in Wireless Networks (Cellular, ad-hoc, mesh topologies), Cooperative and Heterogeneous Networks.
