School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering


Tassos Paraskevopoulos is a PhD research student in the Wireless Communications Group at the School of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering, Loughborough University, UK under a joint PhD programme with National Center for Scientific Research "Demokritos", Institute of Informatics & Telecommunications, Greece.

He is currently working on modelling and characterization of body-centric communication channels. More specifically, he is interested in wearable antennas design and characterisation, study of wave propagation concepts on human body and development of channel models through EM simulations and measurements. His expertise is also extended in near-field antenna measurements and theoretical concepts of microwave engineering in general.

In 2012 he received his Diploma degree (8.1/10) in “Electrical and Computer Engineering” from the Polytechnic School of Democritus University, Greece. His diploma thesis was focused on the “Study of phased arrays printed on electronically controllable ferroelectric substrate”
