Biography of Professor Georgios Ch. Sirakoulis
Dr. Georgios Ch. Sirakoulis received the M.Eng. Diploma as well as the Ph.D. Diploma of Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the Democritus University of Thrace, in 1996 and 2001, respectively; he is Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering since 2018. In addition, he has been a visiting researcher / professor at UWE, UK since 2014 and prior to his academic appointment, he has worked in the private sector as a co-founder and research associate of Ulysses Ltd. (1999-2002). He is author(co-author) of more than 120 peer reviewed articles in prestigious international scientific journals and more than 150 peer reviewed articles in proceedings of international scientific conferences. He has co-authored and co-edited 7 scientific books (six international and one national book) and is the author of 25 chapters in international scientific books. He is an Associate Editor in well-known magazines in the field of circuits and systems, such as IEEE Trans. on Nanotechnology, IEEE TCAS II, IEEE Trans. on Computer, etc. and is an elected member of many international and national scientific associations. He has supervised and he is supervising 11 Doctoral Dissertations, 22 Postgraduate Theses and 75 Diploma Theses, while some of the above dissertations and theses have been awarded by the Department, and by domestic and international bodies. Prof. G. Sirakoulis has worked as a Coordinator, Principal Investigator or Scientific Officer/Researcher in more than 30 research projects funded by GSRT, the European Union, HFRI, as well as by institutions and private companies in Greece and abroad, in research topics related to nanoelectronics, future and emergent electronic-nanoelectronic devices, circuits and architecture, novel computational architecture, applications of complex and intelligent electronic systems in robotics, energy, building evacuation, etc. He has organized many international conferences and workshops, such as NANOARCH 2019, NANOARCH 2018, PACET 2017, etc. and has delivered invited talks at more than 30 international conferences, workshops and universities abroad in the last five years. His research emphasis is on future and emergent electronic devices, circuits, models and architectures including memristors and quantum cellular automata, beyond CMOS computing devices and circuits and non von Neumann computing architectures, unconventional and bioinspired computation/biocomputation and cellular automata. He is Vice Chair of IEEE Task Force on Unconventional Computing, secretary of IEEE CAS Nano-Giga TC and member of IEEE CAS CNNAC TC.
