I have also been teaching advanced mobility management protocols for the Future Internet at the Institut Supérieur de l'Electronique et du Numérique (ISEN) in France during autumn 2010. He has received two times best paper awards in IEEE ICC 2010 and WWRF conferences respectively. He has been visiting researcher at WinLab in Rutgers University (USA) and recipient of the British Telecom Fellowship Award in 2005. Vasilis is a member of IEEE, member of IET and member of the INFORMS section on Telecommunications

My research interests lie broadly within the closely overlapped areas of wireless networking, mobile computing, and architectural aspects of the Future Internet. More specifically, optimization algorithms for wireless multi-hop mesh networks and programmable virtualized mobile networks. The emphasis is on the design and analysis of algorithms for scheduling, routing, admission control, load and power management with application to both centralized and distributed implementations.
