Short Bio:

Georgia Koutsandria is a Postdoc researcher at the Computer Science Department of University of Rome "La Sapienza", Italy. She has been working with the “La Sapienza” spinoff WSENSE S.r.l. as R&D Engineer since July 2020..She holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Rome "La Sapienza”, Rome, Italy, an M.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of California, Davis, USA, and a Diploma degree (5 years program) in Electronic and Computer Engineering from the Technical University of Crete, Chania. In 2017, she was a visiting scholar at the ECE Department at Northeastern University, Boston, USA. Her research lies in the area of Internet of Things (IoT) and focuses on the design, implementation and performance evaluation of optimized learning-based and cross-layer-driven solutions for IoT networks, such as energy harvesting and wake-up radio-based wireless sensor networks (WSNs). She has participated to real test-bed experiments for wake-up radio-based WSNS where her involvement focused on the performance improvement of cross-layer approaches. She has participated in US projects funded by the US Department of Energy (DOE). She was the PI of a Sapienza research grant for young researchers on green wireless networks. In 2018, she was awarded the N2 Women Young Researcher Fellowship. In the past years, she has been a member of several technical program committees and a reviewer of over two dozens of international technical conferences and journals.
