Dr. Alexandros-Apostolos A. Boulogeorgos was born in Trikala Town, Central Greece. He received his Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) diploma degree from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) in 2012. Starting from October 2012, he was a Ph.D student for approximately 4 years. His work spanned the wide area of wireless digital communications; however, he put special emphasis on the recently emerging field of low-cost hardware- constraint communications. He is the author or co-author of more than 20 technical papers, which are published in scientific journals and presented at international conferences, most of them during 2016 and 2017. Furthermore, Dr. Boulogeorgos has submitted two (one national and one European) patents.
His current research interests are in the broad area of wireless communications with emphasis in low power consumption wireless communications, machine-to-machine communications, and fifth generation (5G) wireless communications, and wireless optical communications. He is working for the project “TERRANOVA-Terabit/s Wireless Connectivity by Terahertz innovative technologies to deliver Optical Network Quality of Experience in Systems beyond 5G”, EU, H2020. During 2012-2015, his work has been supported by “MIMOSA: MIMO Techniques for Satellite and Stratospheric Communication Systems – Network of Excellence”, Program THALES 2011, GSRT, and “SOLDER: Spectrum OverLay through aggregation of heterogeneous DispERsed Bands”, EU, FP7. During 2017, he worked for the project “enCOMPASS: Collaborative Recommendations and Adaptive Control for Personalised Energy Saving”, EU, H2020. During the academic year 2013-2014, he has visited Khalifa University, Abu-Dhabi, UAE, as a guest researcher. Additionally, he has been involved as Member of Technical Program Committees in several IEEE and non-IEEE conferences. He has served as a reviewer in various IEEE journals and conferences. Moreover, from October 2012 until September 2016, he was a teaching assistant in four courses at the department of ECE of AUTh, namely Digital Communications, Telecommunication Networks, Broadband Networks, and Wireless Communications, whereas from February 2017, he serves as a visiting lecturer at the department of Informatics & Telecommunications Engineering of the University of Western Macedonia, where he teaches the undergraduate course “Cloud Computing”, and at the department of Computer Science and Biomedical Informatics of the University of Thessaly, where he co-teaches the postgraduate course “Sensor Networks and Automatic Control Systems”.
He serves as a reviewer in several international journals, such as IEEE Communications Magazine, IEE Wireless Communications Magazine, IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, IEEE Vehicular Technology, IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security, IEEE Access, IEEE Signal Processing Letters, IEEE Wireless Communications Letters, IEEE Photonics Journal, IEEE/OSA Journal of Optical Communications and Networking, Elsevier Digital Signal Processing, MDPI Sensors, International Journal of Electronics and Communications, Springer Wireless Networks, Hindawi Journal of Computer Networks and Communications, Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies, and International Journal of Computing and Digital Systems.
Dr. Alexandros-Apostolos A. Boulogeorgos was awarded with the “Distinction Scholarship Award” of the Research Committee of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki for the year 2014. Moreover, he was an exemplary reviewer for IEEE Communication Letters for 2016 (top 3% of reviewers). Moreover, he serves as a reviewer in several international conferences, such as the IEEE Global Communications Conference, IEEE International Communications Conference and IEEE International Wireless Communications & Networking Conference.
