Dr Petros Karadimas
- Affiliate (School of Engineering)
Dr. Petros Karadimas was born in Tripolis, Greece. He received the M.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Patras, Greece, in 2002 and 2008, respectively. From December 2009 to August 2011, he was a Research Fellow with the Centre for Wireless Network Design, University of Bedfordshire, U.K., where, in September 2011, he was appointed a Lecturer in electronic engineering. In August 2016, he was a Lecturer in electrical and electronic engineering with the James Watt School of Engineering, University of Glasgow, U.K., where he established a research group focusing on antenna arrays and MIMO antennas design and optimization. He also led the development and establishment of the Communications Sensing and Imaging research theme of the James Watt School of Engineering, University of Glasgow.
Petros Karadimas has received funding by major research councils and organizations including U.K.’s EPSRC and CDE/DSTL. More specifically, he was the Principal Investigator of the CDE/DSTL funded project “CDE41130: Dynamic Cyber-Security Systems over Rapidly Time-Varying Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs),” developing key generation algorithms for vehicular communications. He was also the Principal Investigator of the EPSRC funded project “EP/R041660/1: Bandwidth and Energy Efficient Compact Multi-Antenna Systems for Connected Autonomous Vehicles,” designing optimum MIMO antennas for vehicular communications. His research interests include radio propagation and wireless channel modeling, antenna arrays and MIMO antennas, communication and information theory, and physical layer wireless security and secrecy.
1. May 2018 – April 2021: EPSRC (~250K GBP), “Bandwidth and Energy Efficient Compact Multi-Antenna Systems for Connected Autonomous Vehicles,” Principal Investigator.
2. January 2016-March 2016: CDE/DSTL (~100K GBP), “Dynamic Cyber-Security Systems over Rapidly Time-Varying Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANETs),” Principal Investigator.
Petros Karadimas led a stand-alone and independent research group relying solely on external funding. As a result he has supervised the research activities of the following group members:
- Abed Pour Sohrab: Compact MIMO Antennas
- Yingke Huang: Optimized Antenna Arrays
- Mahmoud Shawky: Serverless Authentication Schemes
- Mirko Bottarelli (Warwick Manufacturing Group): Cryptographic Key Generation Schemes
Petros Karadimas is accepting PhD applicants in the broad research areas of: a) Radio Propagation and Wireless Channel Modeling, b) Antenna Arrays and MIMO Antennas, c) Communication and Information Theory and d) Physical Layer Wireless Security and Secrecy.
