Dr Petros Karadimas
- Lecturer in Glasgow College UESTC (Systems Power & Energy) (Systems Power & Energy)
Dr. Petros Karadimas was born in Tripolis, Greece. He completed his MEng and PhD degrees in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Patras, Greece, in 2002 and 2008, respectively. He was a Research Fellow in the Centre for Wireless Network Design (CWIND), University of Bedfordshire, UK, from December 2009. He was appointed as a Lecturer in Electronic Engineering in the same University in September 2011. In August 2016, he moved to the University of Glasgow, UK, as a Lecturer in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, where he established a research group with current focus on modeling and optimization of antenna arrays and multiple antenna systems. He also led the development and establishment of the Communications Sensing and Imaging (CSI) theme as part of the Systems, Power and Energy (SPE) research division.
Petros Karadimas research has been funded by major councils and organizations including UK's EPSRC and CDE/DSTL. 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 presently leads the EPSRC funded project “EP/R041660/1: Bandwidth and Energy Efficient Compact Multi-Antenna Systems for Connected Autonomous Vehicles,” designing novel antenna arrays for vehicular communications underpinned by optimum communication performance. His research interests include: a) Radio Propagation and Wireless Channel Modeling, b) Antennas, Antenna Arrays and Multiple Antenna Systems, c) Communication and Information Theory and d) Physical Layer Wireless Security and Secrecy. Accordingly, he has made significant contributions in those fields including: a) generalized parametric stochastic channel models for fixed, mobile and mobile-to-mobile communications, b) a complete theory that characterizes the performance of compact antenna arrays and c) optimum cryptographic key generation based on the physical layer attributes of wireless communications.
