Biography

Dr. Petros Karadimas was born in Tripolis, Greece. He completed 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 optimization of antenna arrays and MIMO antennas. 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, U.K. Since January 2022, he is an Associate Professor with the School of Engineering and the Built Environment, Edinburgh Napier University, U.K.

Dr. 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,” optimizing antenna arrays and 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.
