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, between December 2009 - August 2011. 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 has 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 (CSI) research theme as part of the Systems, Power and Energy (SPE) division of the James Watt School of Engineering.
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 optimum MIMO antennas for vehicular communications. His broad research interests include: 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. 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 MIMO antennas and c) optimum cryptographic key generation schemes based on the physical layer attributes of wireless communications.

Alternatively, you can identify a different topic aligned with my research interests and email your project proposal to me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Admission and funding for PhD research is administered by the School of Engineering and you need to go through the process described here:
Funding is provided to applicants accoring to the following eligibility criteria:
- Settled status in the UK, meaning they have no restrictions on how long they can stay, and;
- Been "ordinarily resident" in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the grant. This means they must have been normally residing in the UK (apart from temporary or occasional absences), and;
- Not been residing in the UK wholly or mainly for the purpose of full-time education (this does not apply to UK or EU nationals).
Once you have applied in a field aligned with my research interests, we will arrange an interview to further process your application.
