Verikoukis, Christos - PhD
Christos Verikoukis got his degree in Physics and his M.Sc. in Telecommunications Engineering in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) in 1994 and 1997, respectively. He got his PhD from the Signal Theory and Communications Department of the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), Barcelona, in 2000, in the area of Broadband Indoor Wireless Communications. From March 2003 to February 2004 he was research associate of the Southeastern Europe Telecommunications & Informatics Research Institute (INA), Thessaloniki, Greece where he participated in National and European projects. Since February 2004 he is senior research associate in the CTTC Wireless Access Technologies area. Dr Verikoukis has participated or is currently participating in several European (ACTS, IST FP5 & FP6, Marie-Curie, eTEN and INTERREG) and National (in Spain and in Greece) funded projects. He is an IEEE Senior Member.
His research interests include ARQ schemes, MAC protocols, RRM algorithms, cross-layer techniques and cooperative communications in wireless communications systems such as WLAN, WiMax and Wireless Sensor Networks.
