Dr Panos Kosmas

Biographical details

Panagiotis Kosmas, Ph.D., joined King’s College London (KCL) as a Lecturer in 2008, and is currently a Reader at KCL’s Department of Informatics. Prior to his appointment at KCL, he held research positions at the Center for Subsurface Sensing and Imaging Systems (CenSSIS), Boston, USA, the University of Loughborough, UK, and the Computational Electromagnetics Group, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA. He is also the co-founder of Mediwise Ltd, an award-winning UK-based SME focusing on the use of EM waves for medical applications.

Dr. Kosmas’ research interests include radio-frequency methods for sensing and imaging, computational electromagnetics with application to subsurface sensing, antenna design, and inverse problems theory and techniques. He has over 100 journal and conference publications in these areas. He has also guest-edited special issues, taught special courses, and organised and chaired special sessions and workshops in international conferences. At King's, he has taught undergraduate and graduate courses on EM theory, antennas and propagation, electronics, and stochastic processes. He has co-authored a chapter for a Springer monograph on microwave medical imaging titled “An Introduction to Microwave Imaging for Breast Cancer Detection”. From 2013–2017, he served as an elected Working Group Leader for the MiMed COST action (TD1301) on microwave imaging. Dr Kosmas has received multi-million private and public funding from the UK and the EU for projects in microwave sensing and imaging, and signal processing for land-mine detection.
