Dr. Alexandros-Apostolos A. Boulogeorgos was born in Trikala Town, Central Greece. He received his Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) diploma degree from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) in 2012. Starting from October 2012, he was a Ph.D student under the supervision of Professor George K. Karagiannidis for approximately 4 years. His work spanned the wide area of wireless digital communications; however, he put special emphasis on the recently emerging field of hardware-constraint communications. In general lines, hardware-constraint communications deals with the concept of designing digital signal processing solutions to cope with transceivers imperfections, allowing lee-way in the requirements set of the communication devices. This is a very important and promising research area, since it offers opportunities for more realistic theory and more holistic designs together with a potential of reducing the cost and the energy consumption of mobile devices.
Dr. Alexandros-Apostolos A. Boulogeorgos was awarded with the “Distinction Scholarship Award” of the Research Committee of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki for the year 2014.
Dr. Alexandros-Apostolos A. Boulogeorgos is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), IEEE Communication Society, and IEEE Vehicular Technology Society. Moreover, he is serving as a supporting team member of the IEEE Region 8 Continuing Education Forum, which is part of the Educational Activities Subcommittee (EASC). From 2010 to 2011, he served as vice chair of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki IEEE Student Branch. From 2011 to 2013, he was the chair of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki IEEE Student Branch. During his tenure, he was responsible for the organization of a large number of events (symposium, workshops, seminars, educational excursions e.t.c.). From early 2012 to 2014, he was a member of the Committee responsible for organizing academic events of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and a member of the Committee responsible for the celebration of the hundredth anniversary of the liberation of Thessaloniki. He is, also, a founding member of volunteers community. This community voluntarily contributes greatly to making easier the every day routine of the students in the Department.
