BiographyVasileios Karyotis was born in Athens, Greece, in November 1980. He received his Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece, in 2004, his M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, U.S.A., in 2005 and his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from NTUA, Greece, in 2009. Since 2009 he has been with the Network Management and Optimal Design (NETMODE) Lab of NTUA, Greece, where he is currently a senior researcher. His research interests span the areas of stochastic modeling and performance evaluation of communications networks, resource allocations, malware propagation and complex networks. Dr. Karyotis was awarded a fellowship from the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering of the University of Pennsylvania (2004-2005) and one of two departmental fellowships for exceptional graduate students from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of NTUA (2007-2009). He has participated in the technical program committee of ICC and Globecom conferences since 2008 and 2008 respectively, and other conferences as well. He has acted as a reviewer for numerous journals and conferences IEEE, ACM, ICST, etc., such as the IEEE Trans. on Parallel and Distributed Systems, IEEE Trans. on Vehicular Technology, IEEE Trans. on Wireless Communications and IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications. He is a member of the Technical Chamber of Greece since 2004, and a Member of the IEEE since 2003.
