Nestor D. Chatzidiamantis

 

Nestor D. Chatzidiamantis was born in Los Angeles, USA, in January 1981, and raised in Thessaloniki, Greece. He received the Diploma of Electrical and Computer Engineering, in March 2005, from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and the MSc award in the field of Telecommunication Networks and Software, in November 2006, from the University of Surrey. In November 2007, he joined the wireless communications systems group, and since then he is pursuing a PhD degree in the ECE department. His research mainly focuses on the analysis and development of Free Space Optical Systems.

From June 2005, Mr Nestor D. Chatzidiamantis is member of the Greek Technical Chamber, student member of the IEEE and student member of the OSA.
