Dr. Sokratis Barmpounakis is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in SCAN group, Dept. of Informatics and Telecommunications. He holds a Ph.D. in “Context-based Resource Management and Slicing for SDN-enabled 5G Smart, Connected Environments”, since May 2018. Mr. Barmpounakis obtained his Engineering Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering, from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in 2010. After completing his studies, he moved to Geneva, Switzerland. At University of Geneva, he worked for 2 years as a Researcher/Developer in various projects, Swiss and European, as a member of the QoL group. Since March 2013, he is a researcher in the SCAN group, actively involved in numerous European Projects and industrial contracts, having also undertaken managerial roles, coordinating the University of Athens team. His main fields of interest are: 5G, LTE, Software Defined Networking, Context-Aware Resource and Mobility Management and Collaborative Data Sharing mechanisms. He is also a member of the Technical Chamber of Greece.
