Panayiotis Kolios is currently a Research Assistant Professor at the KIOS Research and Innovation Centre of Excellence of the University of Cyprus. He received his BEng and PhD degree in Telecommunications Engineering from King’s College London in 2008 and 2011, respectively. Before joining the KIOS CoE, he worked at the Department of Communications and Internet Studies at the Cyprus University of Technology and the Department of Computer Science of the University of Cyprus (UCY). His work focuses on both basic and applied research on networked intelligent systems. Some examples of systems that fall into the latter category include intelligent transportation systems, autonomous unmanned aerial systems and the plethora of cyber-physical systems that arise within the Internet of Things. Particular emphasis is given to emergency management in which natural disasters, technological faults and man-made attacks could cause disruptions that need to be effectively handled. Tools used include graph theoretic approaches, algorithmic development, mathematical and dynamic programming, as well as combinatorial optimization.
