Aggelos Bletsas received with excellence his diploma degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece in 1998, and the S.M. and Ph.D. degrees in Media Arts and Sciences from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge MA in 2001 and 2005, respectively.
He worked at Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL), Cambridge MA, first as a consultant and then as a Postdoctoral Fellow and at Radiocommunications Laboratory (RCL), Department of Physics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, as a visiting scientist. He joined Electronic and Computer Engineering Department (ECE), Technical University of Crete, in summer of 2009, as an Assistant Professor.
His research interests span the broad area of scalable wireless communication and networking, with emphasis on relay techniques, signal processing for communication, radio hardware/software implementations for wireless transceivers and low cost sensor networks, RFID, time/frequency metrology and bibliometrics. His current vision and focus is on single-transistor front-ends and backscatter sensor networks, for LARGE-scale environmental sensing.
He is Associate Editor of IEEE Wireless Communication Letters and Technical Program Committee (TPC) member of major IEEE conferences. He holds two patents from USPTO and he was recently included in here.
Dr. Bletsas was the co-recipient of IEEE Communications Society 2008 Marconi Prize Paper Award in Wireless Communications, best paper distinction in IEEE International Symposium on Wireless Communication Systems (ISWCS) 2009, Siena, Italy, September 2009 and best student paper award in IEEE RFID Technologies & Applications 2011, Sitges Barcelona, Spain, September 2011. He is also proud of his students who were winners and finalists of the 2009-2011 and 2011-2012 best Diploma Thesis contest among all Greek Universities on "Advanced Wireless Systems", awarded by IEEE VTS/AES joint Greek Chapter.
