Georgia D. Ntouni

- PhD, Wireless Communications Systems Group (WCSG), Department of Electrical &  Computer Engineering, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
- R&D engineer in Intracom Telecom.

Georgia D. Ntouni was born in 1989 in Patras, Greece and received the Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Patras, Greece, in 2012. She worked as a research assistant for the National Technical University of Athens, Greece in 2013 focusing on wireless communication of biomedical implant systems. In October 2018, she received her Ph.D. from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece under the supervision of Prof. George K. Karagiannidis. She is currently holding the position of an R&D engineer in Intracom Telecom, while her research interests include wireless communication theory as well as advanced digital signal processing techniques for communication systems.
During her PhD studies, she has received the best paper award on communication systems in the international conference MOCAST 2017 and was an exemplary reviewer for IEEE Communication Letters for 2016 (top 3%). Moreover, she has received a fellowship of excellence for postgraduate studies in Greece from the State Scholarships Foundation (IKY) during 2015-2017, while she has also been a scholar of Alexander Onassis Foundation since 2017. Finally, she is co-author of two chapters in the books entitled "Basics on the Theory of Fading Channels and Diversity" and "Sensing Principles for Biomedical Telemetry", respectively, and has served as a reviewer in various scientific journals and conferences.
