Dr. Georganas has recently joined IMDEA Networks as a Visiting Researcher and, during the current academic year, has also occupied a Cátedra de Excelencia at University Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M). He is a pioneer in information technology and networking research and an expert in interactive multimedia communications at the School of Information Technology and Engineering of the University of Ottawa, Canada.
Dr. Georganas will collaborate with IMDEA Networks in the training and mentoring of the Institute’s Research Assistants, who are developing their research career whilst undertaking their Ph.D. at UC3M. His research will be focused on Multimedia 3D Content Distribution over Peer-to-Peer Networks; Haptic Tele-Mentoring over Peer-to-Peer Networking; and Privacy Protocols for e-Commerce Communities. The final objective is the evolution from the Internet’s current, mainly wired, nature, towards The Future Wireless Internet, a pervasive, ubiquitous, and mobile networking service, allowing “anytime, anywhere” connectivity.
