Short CV

Sotirios K. Goudos received the B.Sc. degree in Physics in 1991 and the M.Sc. of Postgraduate Studies in Electronics in 1994 both from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. In 2001, he received the Ph.D. degree in Physics from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and in 2005 the Master in Information Systems from the University of Macedonia, Greece. In 2011, he obtained the Diploma degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. He joined the Department of Physics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 2013, where he is currently an Associate Professor.

His research interests include antenna and microwave structures design, evolutionary algorithms, wireless communications, machine learning, and semantic web technologies. Prof. Goudos is the director of the ELEDIA@AUTH lab member of the ELEDIA Research Center Network.

Prof. Goudos is the founding Editor-in-Chief of the Telecom open access journal (MDPI publishing). Prof. Goudos is currently serving as Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, IEEE ACCESS and IEEE open journal of the communication society . He is also member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Antennas and Propagation (IJAP) , the EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking and the International Journal on Advances on Intelligent Systems. He is also member of the Editorial board of the Electronics open access journal (Microwave and Wireless Communications Section).

He was honoured as an IEEE Access Outstanding Associate Editor for 2019 and 2020. Prof. Goudos is currently serving as Chapter/AG coordinator for IEEE Greece Section. He has been elected IEEE Greece Section Secretary 2022. He was the Lead Guest Editor in the 2016 and 2017 Special Issues of the IJAP with topic "Evolutionary Algorithms Applied to Antennas and Propagation: Emerging Trends and Applications". He was also the Lead Guest Editor in the 2018 Special Issue of the EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking with topic "Optimization methods for Key Enabling Technologies: 5G, IoT and Big Data". He was Guest Editor in the IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters, Special Cluster in 2019 with topic "Machine Learning Applications in Electromagnetics, Antennas, and Propagation".

Thesis Supervision

In addition to these courses, I supervise students at both the Bachelor's and Master's level. I have successfully supervised more than two dozen master's students since 2009. I regularly publish papers in international peer-review journals and international conferences. I am always looking for highly motivated, hard working and creative students.
