Dr Christos Giagkoulovits
- Research Associate (Electronic & Nanoscale Engineering)
Dr Christos Giagkoulovits is a Research Associate in the School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow. His main focus is on the development of CMOS-based portable sensing platforms with applications ranging from point-of-care diagnostics to emerging localisation technologies for autonomous vehicles.
Prior to this position Dr Giagkoulovits was a Research Assistant (2017-2020) with the Microsystems Technology group at the University of Glasgow where he also completed his PhD research on arrayed electrochemical sensing platforms. His research attracted industrial interest and formed international collaborations in the fields of environmental monitoring and drug discovery. In his previous role he became the lead electronics design engineer of CMOS diagnostic platforms that led him co-founding the spin-off company MulticorderDX. The company is now exploring the use of optical and electrochemical sensing technology researched by Dr Giagkoulovits for applications of coagulation and prostate cancer monitoring.
In his current role Dr Giagkoulovits is the main University of Glasgow representative working in a long-term collaboration with a major defence industrial partner, exploring novel pathways to precise automotive navigation and positioning. His experience on industrial collaborations allows him to draw from the University’s renowned research and consult the partner while offering the University of Glasgow the opportunity to follow the latest commercial trends and industrial practices.
Research delivered by Dr. Giagkoulovits includes medical and biochemical point-of-care devices and systems, VLSI design for sensors, CMOS analogue, digital and mixed-signal ASIC design, lab-on-a-chip, amperometric and potentiometric sensors, SPAD and photodiode integrated optical imagers, CMOS post-processing, modelling and simulations in custom-designed simulation environments (e.g. electrode interfaces or co-operative navigation), Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs), Inertial Navigation Systems (INS).
