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 Professor of Intelligent Digital Systems in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, the Director of Undergraduate Studies of the department and leads the Intelligent Digital Systems Lab (iDSL).

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

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 ACM TRETS, IET Computers and Digital Techniques,  and the Journal of Systems Architecture.
