Since 1986 he is with the Electrical and Computing Engineering Department of the University of Patras, where he is currently Professor of Electroacoustics and Digital Audio Technology and head of the Audio and Acoustic Technology group at the Wire Communications Laboratory (WCL). During 2000, he was a visiting professor at the Institute for Communication Acoustics at Ruhr-University Bochum, in Germany. He has participated in numerous national and EC projects, has organised seminars and short courses and contributed towards the development of digital audio devices. He has authored and presented more that 120 papers in refereed international Journals and Conferences as well as 50 papers in national Conferences and 4 book chapters. He has co-organised numerous national conferences, was Chairman of the international Conference on the Acoustics of Ancient Theatres (2011) and guest editor for the corresponding Special Issue of Acta Acustica united with Acustica. For his research he was awarded the Fellowship of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) in 2006.
His research covers many aspects of digital processing of audio and acoustic signals, especially for room acoustics equalisation. He has also worked on perceptually-motivated models for such applications, as well as for speech and audio signal enhancement. His recent research interests also relate to aspects of all-digital audio chain, including WLAN audio, amplification and direct acoustic transduction of digital audio streams.
He is a member of the Audio Engineering Society serving as chairman of the Greek section for the period 1993-95 and currently acting as vice-chairman, of the IEEE and of the Hellenic Institute of Acoustics for which he has served as vice-president and currently as member of the board.
