Dr Konstantinos Manousakis is a Research Fellow at KIOS Research and Innovation Center of Excellence. He holds a Diploma (2004) in Computer Engineering and Informatics from the University of Patras, Greece, an MSc (2007) and a PhD (2011) from the same department. In his doctoral research he worked on the design of impairment-aware routing and wavelength assignment (IA-RWA) algorithms for optical wavelength division multiplexing networks.


In parallel to doctoral research, he was able to contribute to Greek and EU projects, in the field of optical networks. He also worked in the Networking Technologies Sector (NTS) of the Research Academic Computer Technology Institute as a Computer Engineer. NTS focuses on the planning and the implementation of networking infrastructures, telematic services and optical networks.


His current research interests include optimization algorithms for high speed networks, physical layer security in optical networks, routing and wavelength assignment algorithms, network planning and operation tools, protection and restoration techniques for optical networks, energy optimization algorithms in optical networks and techno-economic aspects of telecom networks.
