Yiannis Andreopoulos is Senior Lecturer and Undergraduate Departmental Tutor for the UCL Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering Sciences.
Yiannis obtained the Electrical Engineering Diploma and an MSc degree from the University of Patras, Patras, Greece. He obtained the PhD in Applied Sciences from the University of Brussels (Belgium) in May 2005. During 2002-2004, Dr. Andreopoulos made several decisive contributions to the ISO/IEC JTC1/SC29/WG11 (Moving Picture Experts Group – MPEG) committee in the early exploration on scalable video coding. During his post-doctoral work at the University of California Los Angeles (US) he performed research on cross-layer optimization of wireless media systems, video streaming, and theoretical aspects of rate-distortion-complexity modeling for multimedia stream processing systems. From Oct. 2006-Dec. 2007, he was Lecturer at the Electronic Engineering Department of Queen Mary University of London. Since Dec. 2007, he is with the Electronic and Electrical Engineering Department of UCL, currently as Senior Lecturer in the Communications and Information Systems Group.
Research interests: I am working in the fields of multimedia stream processing and coding, error-tolerant computing, signal processing & transform design, and wireless protocols for low-end systems (e.g. sensor networks).
