ALEXANDROS-APOSTOLOS A. BOULOGEORGOS was born in Trikala, Greece in 1988. He received the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) diploma degree and Ph.D. degree in Wireless Communications from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) in 2012 and 2016, respectively.
From November 2012, he has been a member of the wireless communications system group (WCSG) of AUTh, working as a research assistant/project engineer in various national and European (EU) telecommunication and networks projects, including THALIS-MIMOSA: Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) technologies for SAtellite systems communications, THALIS-SOCONET: extraction and exploitation of Subsystems sOcial structure for effiCient Operation of cogNitivE RadiocommunicaTions Systems, and SOLDER: Spectrum OverLay through aggregation of heterogeneous DispERsed Bands. During 2017, he joined the information technologies institute (ITI), where he worked in the H2020 project enCOMPASS, while from November 2017, he has joined the Department of Digital Systems, University of Piraeus, where he conducts research in the area of high-frequency (terahertz – THz) wireless communications and participates in the EU H2020 project TERRANOVA-Terabit/s Wireless Connectivity by Terahertz innovative technologies to deliver Optical Network Quality of Experience in Systems beyond 5G.
From October 2012 until September 2016, he was a teaching assistant at the department of ECE of AUTh, whereas, from February 2017, he serves as an adjacent assistant professor at the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering of the University of Western Macedonia (UOWM), teaching the following courses: Microwave Communications (Semester 9), Cloud Computing (Semester 8) and Mobile and Satellite Communications (Semester 8), and as an visiting lecturer at the Department of Computer Science and Biomedical Informatics of the University of Thessaly, where he co-teaches “Sensor Networks and Automatic Control Systems” in the departments postgraduate program. Finally, Dr. Boulogeorgos was co-supervised more than 10 diploma thesis both conducted in AUTh and UOWM.
Dr. Boulogeorgos has authored and co-authored more than 45 technical papers, which were published in prestigious scientific journals and presented at distinguished international conferences, and has more than 45 international collaborations with prominent researchers. Furthermore, he is an inventor participating in two (2) patents (one national and one European). Likewise, he has been involved as a member of Technical Program Committees (TCP) in several IEEE and non-IEEE conferences and served as a reviewer in various IEEE journals and conferences. Dr. Boulogeorgos was awarded the “Distinction Scholarship Award” of the Research Committee of AUTh for the year 2014 and was recognized as an exemplary reviewer for IEEE Communication Letters for 2016 (top 3% of reviewers). Likewise, in 2015, he was awarded a visiting scholarship in Khalifa University, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirate. His current research interests spans in the area of wireless communications and networks with an emphasis in high-frequency (millimeter wave to THz) communications, optical wireless communications and communications for biomedical applications. He is a member of the IEEE and the Technical Chamber of Greece.
