Charalambos D. Charalambous received the B.S. degree in 1987, the M.S. degree in 1988, and the Ph.D. in 1992, all in Electrical Engineering from Old Dominion University, Virginia, USA. In 2003 he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Cyprus, where he is a Professor. In 2005 he was elected Associate Dean of the School of Engineering. He was an Associate Professor at University of Ottawa, School of Information Technology and Engineering from 1999 to 2003, and an adjunct Professor with McGill University from 1999 to 2002. He has served on the faculty of McGill University, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, as a visiting faculty, from 1995 to 1999. From 1993 to 1995 he was a Post-Doctoral Fellow at Idaho State University, Engineering Department.
He is currently an associate editor of the Systems and Control Letters, IEEE Communications Letters, and Technical Committee Chair for the IFAC (International Federation on Automatic Control) on Stochastic Systems, and from 2002 to 2004 he served as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control. He was a member of the Canadian Centers of Excellence through MITACS (the mathematics of information technology and complex systems), from 1998 to 2001. In 2001 he received the Premier’s Research Excellence Award of the Ontario Province of Canada.
Charalambous’ research group ICCCSystemS, Information, Communication and Control of Complex Systems is interested in theoretical and technological developments concerning large scale distributed communication and control systems and networks in science and engineering. These include theory and of stochastic processes and systems subject to uncertainty, communication and control systems and networks, large deviations, information theory, robustness and their connections to statistical mechanics, and large scale distributed systems. His research received funding from the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada, the Canadian Department of Defense, the European Commission, the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation, and the University of Cyprus via Competitive Fund programs.
