George Hloupis is an Assistant Professor at Electronics Engineering Department in Technological Educational Institute (TEI) of Athens. He holds a B.Sc in Electronics Engineering in 1996 from TEI of Athens, M.Sc in Data Communications Systems in 1999 from Brunel University, B.Sc in Energy Technology in 2003 from TEI of Athens and Ph.D in Seismological Signal Processing in 2009 from Brunel University. His areas of expertise are the Early Warning Systems, real time data processing, signal analysis and pattern recognition using non-linear methods as well as computer vision and augmented reality tools for smart systems. He has extended research experience in design and development of embedded measurements systems oriented in environmental data collection, in development of prototype and application specific data analysis methods, in processing of complex problems under parallel computing systems and in the design and development of modern telemetry and wireless sensor networks. He also develops tools and methods for the use of physical computing systems in all levels of education. He participated in several national (PEP, EPEAEK, ARCHIMIDIS, THALΕS) and international research projects (INTERREG, SERISK, MILDMAP-MEDIA, MERG, CYCLOPS, TALOS, REWIND) His published research work in international journals, books and international conference proceedings numbers 80 publications.
George is an undergraduate student at Electronics Engineering Department. His main research interests are computer vision experiment monitoring, augmented reality applications, Bluetooth® LE beacon networks and smart metering systems. His skills include Android application development, digital image and signal processing, embedded systems design and in depth knowledge of programming languages (Java, C, MATLAB).
Evangelos studied Mining Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), and received his diploma degree in 2007. In 2010 he received his first M.Sc. degree at the field of “Geotechnology and the Environment”, and in 2011 he received his second M.Sc. degree at the field of “Environmental and Health Engineering”, both at the Technical University of Crete (TUC), schools of Mineral Resources Engineering, and Environmental Engineering, respectively. During his post-graduate studies he joined a Basic Research program conducted by TUC in collaboration with the Theoretical and Physical Chemistry Institute (TPCI) of the National Hellenic Research Foundation (NHRF), involving structural characterization of industrial minerals via chemical analysis, IR spectroscopy, thermogravimetry, atomic emission spectrometry, and X-ray diffraction techniques. Since 2015, he studies Electronics Engineering at the Technological Educational Institute of Athens (TEI of Athens). He attends various research tasks at the Laboratory of Electrical Characterization of Materials and Electronic Systems, mainly at the field of optical characterization of materials (IR, refractory index). He is currently attending a 6-month internship program at the Atmospheric Physics and Chemistry Group (APCG) at the National Observatory of Athens (NOA), started in March 2017, involving study and implementation of atmospheric electricity measurement systems.
Vasilis completed his dissertation project, and later on his internship at the Laboratory, where he focused on the design and implementation of various, and often innovative, embedded systems. The outcome of his work has been presented in international conferences. With the experience and motivation gained during his time here, he pursued a masters degree in the "Embedded Systems" program, awarded by the Department of Information Technology in Uppsala University in Sweden.Today he is based in Edinburgh, UK and works within the field of subsea wireless communications field, as an embedded software engineer.
