Sotirios-Angelos Lenas

Sotiris-Angelos LENAS (Dr Eng., MSc.) holds a Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering (2009), an M.Sc in Computer Networks and Security (2011) and a PhD in Computer Networks (2015); all from Democritus University of Thrace, Xanthi, Greece.

His expertise lies mainly in the area of delay-/disruption-tolerant networks. In particular, he has worked extensively with the Interplanetary Overlay Network (ION) software distribution by JPL and IBR-DTN software distribution by Braunschweig University. He is also an active contributor to the open-source ION software community by developing and maintaining the Bundle Streaming Service (BSS). BSS is a framework specifically designed for delay tolerant networks, that supports the delivery of streaming media via DTN bundles.

Apart from his contributions in the area of delay-/disruption-tolerant networks, Sotiris has also published a substantial amount of work in the areas of network queue management and network applications. His research interests also include social networking, network management, future Internet technologies and network security.

Over the past sever years, Sotiris has participated in eight multi-partner R&D projects, funded by the European Commision, the European Space Agency and the Greek government, having been frequently assigned the role of Task and Technical Leader. During the summer of 2011, he also served as a visiting researcher at Caltech/Jet Propulsion Laboratory, investigating issues related to DTN.

Currently, as a postdoc research fellow at Space Internetworking Center (SPICE), he is involved in the "Universal, Mobile-Centric and Opportunistic Communication Architecture (UMOBILE)" and "SENsing SKIN for Monitoring-Based Maintenance of the Transport Infrastructure (SENSKIN)" research projects.
