He joined the University of Piraeus in September 2002 as Assistant Professor and became an Associate Professor in December 2007. He teaches courses on telecommunication networks, network planning and management, and queuing systems, at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. He has supervised several PHDs. He currently heads and contributes to the development and growth of the laboratory of Telecommunication Networks and integrated Services (TNS, http://tns.ds.unipi.gr). Most of his current research activities focus on Information Communication Technologies (ICT) projects, partially funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) for research and technological development. He serves as deputy workpackage leader in the UniverSelf project; this project contributes with highly intelligent (cognitive/autonomic) management technologies for realizing the Future Internet era. He participates in the iCore project, which will develop cognitive mechanisms in the «Internet of Things». He is an advisor to NGMN (next generation mobile networks) and member and active contributor to GreenTouch, which will drastically improve the energy efficiency of ICT infrastructures by 2015. He was the Project Coordinator of the OneFIT (www.ict-onefit.eu) project (07/2010 – 12/2012), which was on the design, development and validation of the concept of applying opportunistic networks and respective cognitive management systems for efficient application/ service/ content provisioning in the Future Internet.
