Dr Orestis Georgiou.

Passionate about research and delivering innovation that leads to impact.

This website is a brief reflection of my personality, research findings, publications, achievements, and affiliations.




Dr Orestis Georgiou has a PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Bristol. He has published over 65 articles in leading journals and conferences of Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science, Engineering and Medicine, two of which received Best Paper Awards. Orestis is passionate about innovation, impact, and collaboration, and is currently a Marie Curie Fellow of the NEWSENs project hosted at the IRIDA research centre for communications, and a Director of Research at Ultrahaptics where he is co-PI of the FET Open projects Levitate and H-Reality. Before that, Orestis was a Senior Researcher at Toshiba TRL, and a Postdoc at the Max Planck Institute PKS in Dresden. He is also a visiting fellow of the School of Mathematics of the University of Bristol and of the Department of Informatics at the University of Sussex. His expertise and research interests lie within the fields of wireless communications and human-computer interactions. Orestis was recently awarded the prestigious 2019 IEEE Heinrich Hertz Award.



Publishing has allowed me to network with other scholars and to further refine my own ideas and research. It’s something I enjoy immensely and hope that these papers will help others further their science and welcome any opportunities to collaborate.



I’ve communicated my science to over 40 academic conferences, organised several international workshops, delivered multiple invited tutorial presentations including a keynote to 500 engineering students.



My exposure to both academic and industrial settings (large and small) over the past 10 years has taught me to think strategically, pragmatically, and scientifically, positioning me as someone able to imagine, connect and direct research efforts towards tangible objectives and strategic targets.
