    Biographical details

    Received his education from King’s College:  PhD in Telecommunications 2004, M.Sc in Telecommunications in 1997 and B.Eng in Electronic Engineering in 1996.

    (completed 4 PhD students' thesis supervisions as included here).

    Researcher at King's College London from 1998 and ongoing. Also, Lecturer at King's College London in 2022:

    - 2022: Lecturer in Mobile and Personal Communications Systems Full course teaching contract as a replacement for Prof. Hamid Aghvami in semester winters/spring 2022. The course Mobile and Personal Communications Systems provides a comprehensive and deep knowledge and understanding of all technical aspects, operations, and applications, from the first generation to 2G (second generation), 3G, 4G and 5G cellular mobile systems. Taught technical aspects include digital communications, end-to end network elements (user equipment, radio access network and core network), protocols and interfaces in 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G cellular systems and their incremental progressions in capabilities over time.

    Research Fellow: Full-time from 1998 to 2012, currently Visiting from 2012 and ongoing. Ensuring research, representation, funding and working in various collaborative and industrial projects and institutions:

    - Since 2012 – ongoing as Visiting Research Fellow: resaerch activites, project initiation, PhD and MSc student supervisions. Outside consultancy and research work in academic, industrial, commercial and governmental environments. Extensive know-how in: long/short-term research projects of large scales, specifications/designs/visions, standards/forums, strategies, IPRs etc. Key technical areas include emerging telecommunications (ICT) such as Future Internet, cellular networks (5G) and Internet of Things (IoT) applications (Smart Cities).

    Full-time Research Fellow/Associate/Assistant from 1998 to 2012. List of project contracts:

    - 2011 to 2012: (full time, not bound to a specific project). Member of European Telecommunication Standardisation Institute (ETSI) industry specification group called AFI “Autonomic network engineering for the self-managing Future Internet” .

His main roles included: (a) Project representative in the World Wide Initiative (WWI) Cross Issues group on System Interfaces synchronising and unifying results and work of major European projects (other involved projects: Ambient Networks, SPICE, WINNER and Mobilife). (b) eMobility initiative: contributing member of the Working Group Roadmap for Beyond 3G (4G) Networks and Strategic Research Agenda; (c) IEEE P1900.4 Standardisation – Working Group on “Architectural Building Blocks Enabling Network-Device Distributed Decision Making for Optimized Radio Resource Usage in Heterogeneous Wireless Access Networks”. Contributed as King’s College London’s DRA (Designated Representative Alternate) in 2007; (d) worked in WP2 System Architecture and WP6 Cognitive Networks.

    - 2004 to 2006: End-to-end Reconfigurability – Phase 1 (E2R) project. Same strategic objective as E2RII.  (IST-2002-, Project coordinator Motorola, France, Budget 15.9 M€, Resources: 55PersonY/Y, Consortium: 29 partners). Some of his roles included: (a) Leader of sub-Work Package 1.2 “Architecture, Models and Reconfigurability Management” of WP1 E2R System Research; (b) E2R project representative in the WWI Cross Issues group (see E2R II) on System Architecture

    - 2002 to 2004: Siemens (AG, Munich, Germany) Research Fellow at King’s College. Siemens individual contract focused on development of IP-based short-term research solutions, intellectual property rights, technical specifications and commercial and service aspects for moving networks (trains, buses, airplanes…). Project was called ASCOT (Architecture for Self-COntained moving Networks) and done in collaboration with British Telecom.

    - 2001-2002: MIND project (Mobile IP-based Network Developments, IST-2000-4.5.4-28584). European Commission FP5 project and the follow-up of the BRAIN project (same consortium, see below, budget 8.7M€).Emphasis on beyond-3G / 4G systems, ad-hoc, self-organising and wireless IP networks. His roles included leading multi-homing development and self-organisation activities in WP2 Access Network Architectures and liaison with IRTF Micro Mobility Subgroup of IETF.
