Christos Spatharakis received his Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in 2010. His Diploma thesis was carried out at CERN and focused on the design and development of analog and digital circuits for the readout systems of the ATLAS detector. He received his MSc in Analog and Digital IC Design from Imperial College London in 2011 and his thesis concerned the design of an analog receiver based on compressive sampling. He is a member of the Photonics Communications Research Laboratory pursuing his PhD and his main research activities include Digital Signal processing for coherent optical transceivers, multiformat optical QAM signal generation for telecom systems and FPGA design. His work on these fields is carried out through the active participation in the FP7 ICT-SPIRIT and H2020 ORCHESTRA and NEPHELE European projects.
