Ioannis E. Foukarakis received his Dipl.-Ing. Degree and his PhD Degree from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of National Technical University of Athens in 2003 and 2008. During his Dipl. Ing. and PhD, he worked both in the public and private sector in various roles. From 2008 to 2010, he was a visiting lecturer in University of Peloponnese (Department of Telecommunications Science and Technology).

He has participated in various European and Greek research programs, including: He was also a member of the Technical and Scientific Support of the Greek Ministry of Transport and Communications in the
  • development of the National Strategy Plan for transition from Analog to Digital Television,
  • the coordination of Digital TV frequencies with neighboring countries and
  • the Development of the National Frequency Map for Digital Television.

Starting 2008, he was also employed as a Consultant/Software Engineer in the private sector, designing and implementing enterprise applications mainly targeted for mobile operators.

His research interests include Distributed Systems, Software Engineering and Mobile Internet technologies.
