Georgios Mitsis

Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Cyprus University of Technology


Georgios Mitsis received the Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece in 1997 and M.S. degrees in Biomedical and Electrical Engineering, as well as the Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Southern California (USC), Los Angeles, CA, USA in 2000, 2001 and 2002 respectively. He worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the USC Biomedical Simulations Resource from 2002 to 2005 and at the Centre for Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain (fMRIB Centre), University of Oxford, UK from 2006 to 2007. He was an ENTER Research Fellow at the National Technical University of Athens from 2007 to 2008 and in January 2009 he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Cyprus, where he is currently a Lecturer. His research interests include algorithm development for nonlinear and nonstationary systems identification, and their applications to quantitative/systems biology and physiology. He is a member of the IEEE and he serves as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) Conference.

Research Interest

Nonlinear and nonstationary systems identification, model order selection for nonlinear systems, biosignal processing and mathematical modeling of biological systems, quantitative/systems physiology, cardiovascular and respiratory control mechanisms, cerebral hemodynamics and functional magnetic resonance imaging of the brain, glucose metabolism and control.
