Short Biography

Athanasia received her Diploma and PhD in Electrical and Computing Engineering from the University of Patras, Greece in 2004 and 2009 respectively. Her PhD Thesis was on QoS-based Control and Optimization Techniques for Wireless Networked Systems.

In 2010, she was appointed as a Research Associate in ICT for Independent Living with the Smart Environments Research Group, School of Computing and Mathematics, at the University of Ulster, UK. In 2012, she joint the Hamlyn Centre, Institute for Global Health Innovation, at ImperialCollege, London, UK, as a Research Associate and conducted research on Quality of Service for Body Sensor Networks.

Since 2013 Athanasia is a Post-doctoral Researcher at the Signal Processing Laboratory. She is currently working on the DEDALE project (H2020-FET-OPEN-RIA-2014-2015) with Professor Panos Tsakalides. Her primary research interests include architectures for distributed intelligence and self-learning networks, Wireless Sensor and Body Area Networks, with emphasis on autonomic networking techniques, and unsupervised feature-level fusion with real-time and distributed characteristics. Her research applies on realistic and RF-harsh environments (e.g., industrial environments) with the ultimate objective of promoting decentralized context-awareness in scalable WSN architectures.

She is a chartered engineer from the Technical Chamber of Greece since 2004, a member of IEEE, and she is serving as a reviewer in numerous research forums, edited by IEEE and Springer.
