Katerina (Aikaterini) Koutlia received her B.Sc. in Electronics Engineering (2009) from the Alexander Technological Educational Institute of Thessaloniki (Greece) and her M.Sc. with distinction (2011) in Wireless Communication Systems from the Brunel University (Uxbridge, UK). In 2016 she obtained her PhD with honors (supported with a grant by the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport) from the Mobile Communication Research Group (GRCM) of the Department of Signal, Theory and Communications (TSC) at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC).

From May 2016 until November 2018, she worked as a Research Assistant in the GRCM, where she has been involved in several European and National projects (NEWCOM#, SESAME, 5G ESSENCE, ARCO, RAMSES, SONAR 5G). Her research interests involved Heterogeneous Networks, Interference Management and Scheduling algorithms, Optimization algorithms, Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV), RAN Slicing and Software-Defined Radio (SDR) testbeds. Moreover, the research involved collaboration with the research center FBK CREATE-NET, in Trento (Italy), including various visits and common publications.

In December 2018 she joined CTTC as Researcher in the OpenSim Research Unit (former Mobile Networks Department), where she forms part of the developing team of the LENA/5G-LENA network simulators. Work activity is focused on the extension of the simulators with 3GPP/5GPP standard compliant features. In particular, she is responsible for the design and analysis of PHY/MAC layer related functions, e-ICIC algorithms including X2/Xn interfaces, Heterogeneous Networks, and Radio Environmental Maps (REM). She has participated in Industrial research projects with Huawei, Facebook and USA Defense Spectrum Organization (DSO) under the Spectrum Sharing Test and Demonstration (SSTD) Program, while she has been involved in various European and National projects (6GBLUR-Smart, 6GBLUR-Joint, Anemone).

She is the author of 16 publications, 7 of these in international journals and 9 in international conferences and based on Google Scholar she has more than 190 citations. Moreover, she supervised 2 Graduate Thesis and 1 Master Thesis in UPC, while from 2009 to 2010 she was Teaching Assistant in the Alexander Technological Educational Institute of Thessaloniki.
