Personal Wiki of Apostolos Georgiadis
Apostolos Georgiadis (S'94–M'03-SM'08) was born in Thessaloniki, Greece. He received the B.S. degree in physics and the M.S. degree in telecommunications from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1993 and 1996, respectively. He received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, in 2002.
In 1995, he spent a semester with Radio Antenna Communications (R.A.C.), Milan Italy, working on Yagi antennas for U.H.F. applications. In 2000, he spent three months with Telaxis Communications, South Deerfield MA USA, assisting in the design and testing of a pillbox antenna for LMDS applications. In 2002 he joined Global Communications Devices (GCD), North Andover MA USA, as a Systems Engineer and worked on CMOS transceivers for wireless network applications. In June 2003, he joined Bermai, Inc., Minnetonka MN USA, as an RF/Analog Systems Architect. In 2005 he joined the University of Cantabria, Spain, as a Juan de la Cierva Fellow researcher. In 2006 he was a consultant for Bitwave Semiconductor, Lowell MA. In addition he collaborated with ACORDE S.A., Santander, Spain, in the design of integrated CMOS VCOs for ultra wideband (UWB) applications. In March 2007 he joined CTTC as a senior research associate in the area of Communications Subsystems.
In 1996, Dr. Georgiadis received a Fulbright Scholarship for graduate studies at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He received the Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, in 1997 and 1998. He also was the recipient of the Eugene M. Isenberg Award from the Isenberg School of Management, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, in 1999 and 2000. He is the Chairman of COST Action IC0803, RF/Microwave communication subsystems for emerging wireless technologies (RFCSET) and the Coordinator of Marie Curie Industry-Academia Pathways and Partnerships (IAPP) project Symbiotic Wireless Autonomous Powered system (SWAP). He is a Member of the IEEE MTT-S TC-24 RFID Technologies and IEEE MTT-S TC-26 Wireless Energy Transfer and Conversion. He serves at the Editorial board of the Radioengineering Journal and as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters Journal and the IET Microwaves Antennas and Propagation Journal.
His research interests include energy harvesting, RFID enabled sensors, nonlinear microwave circuit design, active antenna arrays and specifically coupled oscillator arrays. Some of the recent developments are listed at the following Wiki link. Follow @aposto1 on twitter
