Dr. Georgia Sakellari is a Senior Lecturer in Distributed Systems and Networking at the School of Science and Technology, Middlesex University. Before joining Middlesex she was a post-doctoral research associate at Imperial College and a Lecturer at the University of East London. She received a Ph.D. in Computer Networks from Imperial College in 2009, a MSc in Techno-Economic Systems and a MEng in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens in 2004 and 2002 respectively. Georgia has worked in European supported projects such as the EU FP6 Project CASCADAS (Component-ware for Autonomic Situation-aware Communications, and Dynamically Adaptable Services) and in UK projects such as the DIF DTC HYPERION, funded by British Telecom and the Ministry of Defence, SATURN (Self-Organizing Adaptive Technology underlying Resilient Networks) funded by Technology Strategy Board and EPSRC and the award winning project ALADDIN (Autonomous Learning Agents for Decentralised Data and Information Networks) funded by EPSRC, BAE Systems and Selex. She has taken part in several programme committees and in the organising committee of the international conference IEEE ISCIS and the international PerNEM workshops of IEEE PERCOM. She has more than 15 publications in highly rated journals (such as ACM transactions, the Computer Journal, Performance Evaluation) and conferences (such as IEEE GLOBECOM, ACM CCS, IEEE MASS).
