Paul-Peter P. Sotiriadis
Paul-Peter P. Sotiriadis, Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National Metsovio Technical University of Athens (NTUA) has had two international successes. He was recently presented with the international 2012 Guillemin-Cauer Award for the best scientific paper by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the global professional body of Electrical Engineers with over 400,000 members in the academic, industrial and wider public sector. The award bears the names of two pioneers in the industry, Dr. E. A. Guillemin and Dr. W. Cauer, professors at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and it is a special honour both for this member of our Association as well as for the School of Electrical and

Computer Engineering at the NTUA. The prize-giving ceremony was held during the 2012 International Conference on Circuits and Systems in Seoul, South Korea, which the scholar attended on an honorary sponsorship from the Onassis Foundation.

It was a happy coincidence that on the day P. Sotiriadis received his award, his PhD student from NTUA, Costas Galanopoulos, was presented with first prize for a student project in the competition held by the 2012 IEEE International Frequency Control Symposium in Baltimore, USA. The winner entered the competition with a research project supervised by P. Sotiriadis and competed against corresponding teams from the Universities of Berkeley and Yale in the USA.

Following his return to Greece after sixteen years in the USA, where he was a professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at John Hopkins University and involved in the field of electronic technology, P. Sotiriadis took up his post as assistant professor at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at NTUA in early 2012, specializing in Microelectronics. He has published 80 original research papers in leading scientific journals and at world IEEE conferences, the majority as the principal or sole author. He is a Senior Member of the ΙΕΕΕ and Associate Editor on the IEEE Sensors Journal, while for several years he held the position of Associate Editor on the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems.

He is also a member of many international conference technical committees, as well as a critic in numerous scientific journals and IEEE and ACM congresses. P. Sotiriadis received his PhD from MIT, his Master’s degree from Stanford University and his degree from the NTUA.
