The newly appointed Assistant Professor George C. Alexandropoulos receives the IEEE Communication Society (ComSoc) Best Young Professional in Industry Award 2018 (link for award recipients, interview), in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the industry in terms of innovative communications research and development, especially in the area of emerging architectures. The event took place on December 10, 2018 in the framework of the IEEE Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM) that was hosted in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
Dr Alexandropoulos holds the Ph.D. degree (best Ph.D. thesis award 2010) from the Computer Engineering and Informatics Department, University of Patras, Greece. He has held research positions at various Greek universities and research institutes, where he technically managed/participated in several national, European, and international R&D projects (indicatively: MIMO HF, ADEL, CONTENT, HARP, HiATUS, R3-COP, SatNeX II, NEWCOM++, ACE II). From 2014 till January 2019, he was Senior Research Engineer at the Mathematical and Algorithmic Sciences Lab, Paris Research Center, Huawei Technologies France SASU delivering statistical signal processing and machine learning algorithms for the physical and medium access layers of the IEEE 802.11 standards' family, 5G networks, and beyond, as well as designing transceiver hardware and networking architectures and studying their fundamental performance limits. His research and development activities span the general areas of algorithmic design, optimization, and performance analysis for wireless communication networks with emphasis on multi-antenna systems and high frequency communications.
