Personal profile

Other

Stylianos Assimonis is currently a Lecturer (equivalent to Assistant Professor) in RF and Microwave Engineering at Queen’s University Belfast, United Kingdom. He joined the Centre of Wireless Innovation (CWI) at the Queen's University Belfast as Research Fellow in 2016, while from 2012 to 2015 he was with the Technical University of Crete and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, as a post-doctoral researcher. He received his PhD and Diploma (M.Eng.) degrees, both in electrical and computer engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in 2011 and 2005, respectively.

His main research interests lie in both the RF Engineering and Wireless Communications scientific areas. Specifically, he is working on the area of Wireless Sensing and Internet of Things (IoT), Electromagnetic Metasurfaces and RF Energy Harvesting. He has published in excess of 40 papers on these topics, including some 18 Nature/IEEE journal papers.

Dr. Assimonis was the recipient of the Postdoctoral Scholarship for Excellence from the Research Committee of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, in 2012, and a co-recipient of the Metamaterials 2013 Best Paper Award (3rd place), the 2014 IEEE RFID-TA Best Student Paper Competition Finalist, and the 2015 5th COST IC1301Workshop Best Student Paper Award (third prize).
