He has published 97 refereed journal and 214 conference papers, and 28 chapters in books in these areas. His work has generated more than 5600 citations and an h-score of 38. He is Co-Editor of the books M-Health: Emerging Mobile Health Systems, and of the Ultrasound and Carotid Bifurcation Atherosclerosis, published by Springer in 2006, and 2012 respectively. He is co-author of the monograph Despeckle Filtering Algorithms and Software for Ultrasound Imaging, published by Morgan & Claypool Publishers in 2008 and the revised second edition to be published in 2015. He was Guest Co-Editor of the Special Issues on Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Health Informatics, Emerging Health Telematics Applications in Europe, Emerging Technologies in Biomedicine, Computational Intelligence in Medical Systems, and Citizen Centered e-Health Systems in a Global Health-care Environment, of the IEEE Trans. on Information Technology in Biomedicine. He was General Co-Chairman of the Medical and Biological Engineering and Computing Conference (MEDICON'2016), IEEE Region 8 Mediterranean Conference on Information Technology and Electrotechnology (MELECON'2016), IEEE 12th International Conference on BioInformatics and BioEngineering (BIBE2012), IEEE Information Technology in Biomedicine (ITAB09), MEDICON'98, MELECON'2000, and Program Co-Chair of ITAB06, and the 4th International Symposium on Communications, Control and Signal Processing (ISCCSP 20010). Moreover, he serves as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics, on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Biomedical Signal Processing and Control, and as member of the IEEE EMBS Technical Committee on Information Technology for Health (since 2011). He served as Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE EMBS (2013-2014), an Associate Editor of the IEEE Trans. on Information Technology in Biomedicine (2000-2012), and of the IEEE Trans. on Neural Networks (2005-2007). He served as Chairperson of the Cyprus Association of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering (96-98), and the IEEE Cyprus Section (98-00). He is a Fellow of IET, and Senior Member of IEEE.
