Research Associate Software Engineer


Yannis Spyridis holds a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Sheffield. In 2018 he started pursuing a PhD at the department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. He is also involved in several european research projects, funded by the Horizon 2020 and Erasmsus+ programmes.

His main research interests evolve around the areas of IoT distributed architectures and wireless communications in unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) networks, as well as security and privacy in smart networks. He is also engaged in several mobile and web developement projects.
