Anastasio Dimas receives GAANN Fellowship

Anastasios Dimas is a first-year PhD student working with Prof. Athina Petropulu in the Communications and Signal Processing Laboratory.   Anastasios obtained his undergraduate Diploma in Computer Engineering from the University of Patras and his Master's degree in Communications Engineering from the Technical University of Munich, in Greece and Germany respectively. During the course of his PhD, his research will focus towards understanding the underlying working principles of the human brain, by interpreting the measured data obtained with the help of techniques borrowed from signal processing, machine learning, and information theory. After his PhD, he intends to pursue a career in academia as an expert in the field of bio-electrical engineering, and looks forward to co-operating with other researchers & industrial partners in order to better understand the function of such complex biological processes, hopefully improving healthcare outcomes.
