Short Bio

Prof. Ioannis T. Rekanos was born in 1970 in Thessaloniki, Greece. He received the Diploma degree (M.Sc.) in Electrical Engineering, in 1993, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering, in 1998, both from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), Thessaloniki, Greece. His doctoral thesis focused on inverse electromagnetic scattering problems. From 2000 to 2002, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Radio Laboratory, Helsinki University of Technology (now Aalto University), Finland, holding a Marie Curie Individual Fellowship. Since 2006, he has been with the Faculty of Engineering, AUTH. Currently, he is Professor in “Wave Propagation” at the Department of Telecommunications, School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, AUTH. He teaches the undergraduate courses “Physics”, “Signals and Systems”, “Acoustics”, “Digital Signal Processing”. Prof. Ioannis Rekanos is a senior member of the IEEE and a member of the Technical Chamber of Greece.
