Constantine Kakoyiannis was born in Athens, Greece, in June 1977. He received the Diploma (a 5-year degree) in electrical and computer engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, in 2000. He also received the Dr. Eng. degree in electrical engineering from NTUA in 2011. His field of study was in energy-efficient compact antennas and arrays for wireless sensors and other small, nonhandheld, portable devices. He has been a Research Associate at the Mobile Radio Communications Laboratory, National Technical University of Athens, Greece, since 2001. His research interests include the design and the theoretical aspects of small antennas, active and parasitic antenna arrays, computational electromagnetics, multielement antennas for wireless sensor networks, compact MIMO arrays, EBG and PBG structures, RF front-end design, and low-noise microwave transistor technology. Dr. Kakoyiannis is a Member of the IEEE (APS, CES, COMSOC, and MTTS), the European Microwave Association (EuMA), the Information Technology Society within the VDE (ITG/VDE), and the European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP). He received the Best Paper Award for work presented at the Third International Conference on Sensor Technologies and Applications. He serves as an Active Reviewer with EURASIP Journal Wireless Communications and Networking, Progress in Electromagnetics Research, Journal of Electromagnetic Waves and Applications, IEEE Communications Letters, IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems, IET Microwaves, Antennas and Propagation, and International Journal of Antennas and Propagation.
