Grigoris Kaltsas received his B.Sc. degree from the National University of Athens, Greece, in 1993 and his Ph.D. degree from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, in 1998. He is now a Professor at the Department of Electronics at the Technological Educational Institute of Athens (TEI-A). Dr. Kaltsas has participated and coordinated several European and national research projects funded by various foundations and industries. He has collaborated with many European research groups from various courtiers within the frame of several projects. He has published over 100 papers in refereed journals and major conferences, and he is an author of 5 patents, two of them being PCTs. He is the Founder and the Head of the Microsystems, Sensors, and Embedded Devices (microSENSES) Laboratory. The microSENSES Laboratory was established in order to enhance the research activities in the general field of microsystems, sensors, microfluidics, and embedded devices (http://users.teiath.gr/microsenses/). He is also the head of the Computational and Control Systems Division of the Electronics Department of TEI-A. He has participated in various committees and boards related to electronics-microsystems-sensors research and education. He was the Technical Program Committee Chair for Eurosensors 2011. He is also a Member of the International Program Committee for the MNE conference. He has presented several talks in various organizations regarding sensors, microsystems, and microfluidics research and development, while he is an active referee in major journals in the microsystem area. His research is mainly focusing on microsystems-microfluidic devices, fabrication and evaluation of integrated thermal sensors, development of new microsystem technologies, flexible substrate technologies, development of integrated biosensors and biosystems, and embedded systems.
