Before re-joining UCL in the beginning of 2008, he was for ten years (1998-2007) Professor of Communication and Information Systems in the Department of Electronic Engineering, University of Surrey, UK. He holds a Diploma (MEng equivalent) in Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, and MSc and PhD degrees in Computer Science from the Department of Computer Science, UCL. At both Surrey and UCL he established and led highly successful research teams. His research interests focus on networking, network management and service engineering, including aspects such as network dimensioning, traffic engineering, quality of service management, ad hoc/mesh/sensor networks, policy-based systems, autonomic networking, multimedia service control and object-oriented communications middleware. He has been instrumental in a number of European and UK research projects that produced important results and has contributed to standardization activities in ISO, ITU-T and the IETF. Prof. Pavlou is on the editorial boards of the IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management, IEEE Communications, IEEE Communication Surveys & Tutorials and the Springer Journal of Network and System Management. He has been the technical program co-chair of the 7th IFIP/IEEE Integrated Management Symposium (IM 2001) and of the 10th IFIP/IEEE International Conference on Management of Multimedia and Mobile Networks and Services (MMNS 2008).
