Charis Mesaritakis: has received his BS degree in Informatics by the department of Informatics & Telecommunications of the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens in 2004. From the same insitution he received the MSc in Microelectronics, whereas in 2011 he received his Ph.D degree on the field of quantum dot devices and systems for next generation optical networks, by the photonic technlogy & optical communication laboratory of the same institution.
In 2012 he was awarded a European scholarship for post-doctoral studies (Marie Curie FP7-PEOPLE IEF) in the joint research facilities of Alcatel-Thales-Lucent in Paris-France, where he worked on intra-satellite communications.
In 2014 he received the G. Latsis national scholarship (scientific studies 2014) for post-doctoral studies in the optical communication laboratory in the University of Athens, where he worked on artificial intelligence schemes and signal processing based on photonic structures.
In 2018 he received the ELIDEK national scholarship for Post-Doctoral Fellows targeting the design and realization of quantum-dot driven subsystem for the realization of photonic computational schemes based on ultra-fast optical neurons and the reservoir-computing paradigm.
He has actively participated as research engineer/technical suprvisor in more than 10 EU-funded research programs (FP6-FP7-H2020) targeting excellence in the field of broadband communications, cyber-physical security and photonic integration.
He is the author and co-author of more than 60 papers in highly cited peer reviewed international journals and conferences, two international book chapters, whereas he is serving as a regular reviewer for IEEE, OSA, AIP and Springer.
