Prof. Dr. Symeon Chatzinotas joined the Interdisciplinary Center for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) at the University of Luxembourg in 2010. He is currently a Full Professor / Chief Scientist I and is the Co-Head of the SIGCOM Research Group with SnT Director Björn Ottersten. The group researches wireless/satellite communications, networking and radar systems.


The SIGCOM focus is on the formulation, modeling, design, and analysis of future communication networks that are capable of supporting new services in a cost efficient manner. This includes channel modeling, transceiver design, pre-coding/equalisation, interference handling, cognitive techniques, multibeam processing, relaying, MIMO systems, resource management, energy harvesting, physical layer security and network performance. 


Chatzinotas has been a Visiting Professor at the University of Parma, Italy and was involved in numerous Research and Development projects for the National Center for Scientific Research Demokritos, the Center of Research and Technology Hellas and the Center of Communication Systems Research, University of Surrey. He received an MEng degree in telecommunications from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki, Greece, in 2003, and both his MSc and PhD degrees in electronic engineering from the University of Surrey, Surrey, UK, in 2006 and 2009 respectively. He was the co-recipient of the 2014 IEEE Distinguished Contributions to Satellite Communications Award and he has (co-)authored more than 400 technical papers in refereed international journals, conferences and scientific books. For the past 10 years, he has been working in the intersection of cellular and satellite communication technologies and he is currently focused on the integration of non-terrestrial networks into 5G.
