Professor A. Manikas 

Professor A. Manikas holds the Chair of Communications & Array Processing in the Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Imperial College London.

He is Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET, formerly IEE) and Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA).

He is Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems (Signal Processing and Aerospace Systems) as well as of the journal on Intelligent Sensors (MDPI). He was on the Editorial Board of the IET Signal Processing from 2007 until 2020.

He has held a number of research consultancies for the EU, industry and government organisations and he was the Technical Lead/Director of the University Defence Technology Centre in Signal Processing (supported by Ministry of Defence UK and EPSRC – incorporating 12 British Universities), 2008-2013.

He is a member of the IEEE COMSOC, Signal Processing and Aerospace Societies and has had various technical chairs at international conferences including the Technical Program Committee Chair of the flagship IEEE International Conference on Communications in 2015 (IEEE ICC 2015 London).

In 2016 and 2017 he was an IEEE COMSOC Distinguished Lecturer and in 2017 and 2018 he was the Chair of the IEEE Communications Technical Committee on Transmission, Access and Optical Systems (TAOS).

He has published an extensive set of journal and conference papers in the areas of wireless communications, radar, antenna arrays and array signal processing, and is the Author of a book (monograph) entitled "Differential Geometry in Array Processing".

He has served as an Expert Witness in the High Court of Justice in UK and Malaysia and as a Panel member (or External Assessor) in various International Academies including the Royal Society's International Fellowship Committee and the European Research Council (ERC).

Professor Manikas is leading a strong group of researchers at Imperial College and has supervised successfully more than 50 PhDs and more than 150 Masters projects.

Professor Manikas is a member of New York Academy of Science and a Chartered Engineer.
