Curriculum vitae

Harilaos G. Sandalidis was born in Florina, Greece, in 1972. He received the five year Diploma degree in Electronics and Computer Engineering and the MSc degree in Business Administration at the Production Engineering and Management Dept. from the Technical University of Crete, Greece in 1995 and 1998, respectively. He also received the MSc degree in Radiofrequency and Microwave Communications and the PhD degree in the Telecommunications area at the Electronics and Telecommunications (former Electronics and Electrical engineering) Dept. from the University of Bradford, UK, in 1996 and 2002, respectively. The period between 1996 and 2001, he was a research assistant at the Telecommunications Systems Institute of Crete, Greece working towards his PhD degree in collaboration with the Bradford University. After his military service, he joined TEMAGON, the technology consulting branch of the Hellenic Telecommunications Organization (OTE Group), in 2002, where he was involved in the risk mitigation program for the 2004 Olympic Telecommunication Network in collaboration with Telcordia Technologies, Inc. He also worked as a senior investigator at the Greek Ombudsman Office. In March 2009, he joined University of Central Greece as a Lecturer at the Dept. of Computer Science and Biomedical Informatics. He is now Assistant Professor at the same Dept. which currently belongs to University of Thessaly. His major research interests include optical wireless communications, computational intelligence, and heuristic optimization techniques regarding their application to the telecommunications field.
