Dr. Ioannis Kyriakides received his B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering in 2003 from Texas A&M University. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in 2005 and 2008 respectively from Arizona State University. He held a research associate position throughout his graduate studies, funded by the Integrated Sensing and Processing program and the Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative of the USA Department of Defence. In the final year of his Ph.D. work, he received the University Graduate Fellowship of the Arizona State University. His research interests include Bayesian target tracking, sequential Monte Carlo methods, heterogeneous data fusion. His research work includes localization of multiple RF sources, tracking surface vehicles using passive acoustic sensing, tracking multiple targets with constraints in motion, tracking multiple targets using cognitive heterogeneous sensors. He has been the coordinator of a Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation funded project on the use of Automated Sonar-Thermal Monitoring for Sea Border Security, CY-RPF, (funding: € 180 K) under the University of Nicosia Research Foundation. Dr. Kyriakides is currently an Associate Professor at the Engineering Department at the University of Nicosia. He participates in the Department of Engineering Quality Assurance Committee and the University of Nicosia Environment, Health, and Safety committee. He is a member of CapTech Information of the European Defence Agency.
