Dr. Christos Bouganis received the M.Eng degree in Computer Engineering and Informatics from University of Patras Greece in 1998, the MSc degree in Communications and Signal Processing in 1999 and the Ph.D. degree in 2004 both from Imperial College London. He joined the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering as academic faculty in 2007. 

He is currently a Senior Lecturer within Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and is also the Director of the MSc in Analogue and Digital Integrated Circuit Design.

His research inlcudes the theory and practice of reconfigurable computing and design automation, mainly targeting digital signal processing algorithms. His work is currenlty focused on Computer Vision and Image Processing, Machine Learning, Markov Chain Monte Carlo Systems, and computing with unreliable harwdare. 

He currently serves on the program committees of many international conferences, including FCCM, FPL, FPT, DATE, SPPRA, and VLSI-SoC and is an editorial board member of IET Computers and Digital Techniques and Journal of Systems Architecture.
