Emmanouil Kalligeros was born in Athens, Greece in 1976. He received his Diploma in Computer Engineering and Informatics in 1999, the M.Sc. degree in Computer Science and Technology in 2001, and the Ph.D. degree in embedded testing in 2005, all from the Computer Engineering and Informatics Department, University of Patras, Patras, Greece. After his military service (February 2005 – February 2006), he served as an adjunct lecturer at University of Patras (2006-2007), University of Peloponnese (2006-2007) and University of the Aegean (2007-2008). Since 2008, he is a faculty member at the Information and Communication Systems Engineering Department, University of the Aegean, Samos Island, Greece, where he currently holds an Assistant Professor position.
Dr. Kalligeros has published several scientific papers in refereed international journals and conferences. His main research interests include VLSI design and test, design for testability, CAD methodologies for VLSI testing, Built-In Self-Test (BIST), test-data compression, and Network-on-Chip (NoC) architectures. Most of his research results have been published in highly esteemed journals, like IEEE Transactions on Computers, IEEE Transactions on CAD of Integrated Circuits and Systems, and IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems. Dr. Kalligeros regularly serves as an invited reviewer in highly accredited journals, like: IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II, IEEE Transactions on CAD of Integrated Circuits and Systems, IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems, Microelectronics Journal, Integration, the VLSI Journal, IET Computers and Digital Techniques. He was also a member of the technical program committee of the INA-OCMC 2013 workshop.
Dr. Kalligeros has been involved in several R&D projects and programs funded by national and European sources. Such programs are: the K. Karatheodori Scholarships Program (University of Patras – position: main researcher), PENED – Programme for the Enhancement of Research Manpower (European Union and Greek General Secretariat for Research and Technology – position: digital systems engineer), Pythagoras Program (European Social Fund – position: researcher), Pythagoras II Program (European Social Fund and national sources – position: postdoctoral researcher), Thales Program (European Social Fund and national sources – position: researcher, member of the main research team). Also, his research as a Ph.D. candidate was financially supported by the Public Benefit Foundation “Alexander S. Onassis”, via its scholarships programs.
Dr. Kalligeros has extensive teaching experience in the area of Digital Circuits and Systems Design. Specifically he has taught: Logic Design, Circuit Theory, Computer Architecture, Microelectronics, Introduction to VLSI, Microprocessors, Operating Systems, and VLSI Systems Design (graduate level) at the Information and Communication Systems Engineering Department, University of the Aegean, Computer Architecture I and II, and Introduction to VLSI at the Computer Engineering and Informatics Department, University of Patras, and Introduction to Hardware Description Languages (Verilog), Hardware Description Languages (VHDL) and Compilers Lab at the Computer Science and Technology Department, University of Peloponnese. In addition, he was a teaching assistant (when pursuing his Ph.D.) in the following laboratories, at the Computer Engineering and Informatics Department, University of Patras: Basic Electronics, Digital Electronics and Computer Architecture.
Dr. Kalligeros is a member of the IEEE and the Technical Chamber of Greece.
