Christos is a lecturer in media technology and joined the team in 2014. Before coming to the UK he worked at the Technological Educational Institute of Crete for 10 years teaching on a variety of subjects from analogue and digital electronics and microcontroller system design to live and studio recording practice and media technology. He was also working in parallel as a sound system engineer and acoustic consultant. Christos holds a master of philosophy (MPhil) in music technology protocol design and a PhD in wireless audio networking, both from Brunel University in London.
Christos is interested in the application of wireless data networking technology for audio networking and has completed research into the modification of the medium access control mechanism of the IEEE 802.11 protocol (Wi-Fi) in order to be able to support high fidelity real time audio broadcasting over local area wireless networks.
Membership to both the Audio Engineering Society and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) has allowed Christos to explore these topics further.
Christos is also interested in the design and implementation of sound and professional lighting systems as well as acoustic improvements and noise control.
Music Technology protocol design, using microcontroller systems. Design and implementation of a novel interfacing protocol for efficient communication between MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) and DMX512 (Digitally Controlled Lighting Systems)
Optimization of IEEE 802.11 standard for efficient wireless audio networking. Modification of the Medium Access Control mechanism of the IEEE 802.11 protocol (Wi-Fi) in order to be able to support high fidelity real time audio broadcasting over local area wireless networks
Design and implementation of a communication and control model of smart consumer, for real time home energy management. This involves appliances communication protocol design, networking infrastructure design and simulation, and embedded control hardware design based on microcontrollers.
