Elias Giakoumidis

Research Fellow


Elias Giacoumidis is a Marie-Curie Fellow at CONNECT in Dublin City University.

His project tackles the “capacity crunch” in Energy-efficient and Phase-Insensitive Coherent Communications (EPIC).

He received his PhD from Bangor University (2010) in high-speed optical communications. He has worked as a post-doctoral researcher for various prestigious optical communications research groups: Heriot-Watt University, University of Sydney CUDOS (deputy project leader), Aston University, Athens Information Technology and Telecom-ParisTech, where he was also teaching optical system modelling.

His research involves balanced theoretical and experimental exploration in high-capacity optical transmission systems with specialization in key modern digital signal processing modulation techniques, machine learning and nonlinear photonics for next-generation local, access networks and flexible long-haul optical communications.  He has authored/co-authored more than 100 papers that appeared in international peer-reviewed journals and top conferences.
